The First National Bank Of Olustee in Oklahoma issued 263 sheets of $10 1902 territorial red seal national bank notes. Collectors love to buy notes from such a small print run. It doesn’t get much smaller than under 500 sheets printed. This denomination and type was the most prolifically issued territorial note. Some can be quite rare. There is a hierarchy in terms of rarity. Red seals from Hawaii are the absolute rarest. In fact, none from Hawaii are currently known to exist. Ten dollar red seals from Porto Rico are also extremely rare, as are red seals from Alaska. The average collector is most likely to encounter red seals from Arizona, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. There were far more territorial banks in Oklahoma during the red seal period than any other state, so notes from Oklahoma are the most common. However, most all red seals should be worth more than $10,000, and sometimes considerably more. William McKinley is pictured on the left hand side of each bill. The number under McKinley is the bank serial number. If that number is #1, then you can expect an additional premium on the value.
