Series 1882 National Currency Brownback Bank Notes

Second charter brownbacks are somewhat subdued compared to First Charter designs but still very much to like.
Especially in the $5.00 denomination which came in a variety of designs, the most notable called Circus Poster.
The Circus Poster design is named because of it's resemblence to the advertising broadsheets Circus's used.
The back left vignette on brownbacks show the state seal representing the banks location.
Series 1882 national currency Brownbacks are highly collectible. Contact me for values if you have one.

The note shown features the "Circus Poster" layout and is highly desirable.
The $5.00 series 1882 Brownback is probably the most individually collected national type note.
The number of title layouts, the rarity and the beauty of the series lends itself to all sorts of collecting strategies.
Depending on the condition, the bank and the title layout these notes can be worth from $300 to $6000 as a type note
If the note is on a rare bank the prices escalate quickly especially if the note is a Serial #1.
My dream note would be an Idaho Territorial note on the First National Bank of Hailey.

1882 $10.00 National Currency Brownback. Series 1882 $10.00 Brownback National Currency
The vignette on the left is an interpretation of "Ben Franklin Drawing Electricity from the Sky" by Benjamin West (1738 – 1820)
This note shares the vignetts with the series 1863 and 1875 $10.00. For some reason they look better on the earlier notes.
Whats it worth? As a type note it's range of values would be from $400 for a rag on a common bank to six figures if the bank is
particularly rare and it's got grade. A crisp $10.00 brownback on Nevada would be an expensive note.

1882 $20.00 National Currency Brownback. Series 1882 $20.00 Brownback National Currency
The vignette at the left depicts the Battle of Lexington, Massachusetts in 1775.
Again, similar in design to the series 1875 and 1863 notes... Same action scene, same alegorical.
$20.00 brownbacks are rarer than their $10.00 and $5.00 counterparts but they don't bring much more.
What are they worth? A low grade $20 on a common bank can be had for $500 give or take.
For a nice high grade type note you can expect to pay $1500 to $2500.

1882 $50.00 National Currency Brownback. Series 1882 $50.00 Brownback National Currency
The front left vignette shows "Washington Crossing the Delaware" by Emmanual Leutze (1816 - 1868)
Series 1882 $50.00 brownbacks are rare and wonderful notes. I have never owned one but who knows... someday.
As a type note they are very rare and the word common just doesn't apply.
What are values? A low grade note will run several thousand on a common bank.
A nice note on a tough Western bank can reach six figures.

1882 $100.00 National Currency Brownback. Series 1882 $100.00 Brownback National Currency
The front left vignette is "Commodore Perry's Victory on Lake Champlain 1814"
Series 1882 $100.00 notes are another very rare type. I have owned one from Nebraska and it was majestic.
These note are very hard to find and even harder to buy when you do find them.
A range of values as a type note would from $6000 to $20000 and up depending on the bank.
