Value of Old Connecticut National Bank Notes

Connecticut is interesting when it comes to national bank notes. There were 117 issuing bank charters in 65 different Connecticut towns. This is a relatively small number compared to some states, like Pennsylvania. If you have old paper money from Connecticut, we are strong buyers. We buy all types of paper money from around the world.

Each bank I list below has detailed information about each bank:

  • How many dollars worth of national currency were printed
  • When the bank opened
  • When it stopped printing money
  • How many years it printed paper money for
  • How many types of national currency the bank issued
  • The charter number (to distinguish the bank with a number) and also the banks’ location (county)

Interested in selling your old Connecticut currency? We require clear photos of both the front and back of your Connecticut bill so we can accurately determine its value. Expect a response within 24 hours from us.

Buy or Sell old Connecticut bank notes

It really depends what your goal is when it comes to Connecticut paper money. Are you a collector wanting to grow your collection? Or are you someone who came to acquire some Connecticut banknotes, and you’re trying to find out what they’re worth.

Either way, you’ve come to the right place. We are here to help! If you want to grow your collection or sell your collection, we’ll do both. We offer a Connecticut banknote finding service where we will track down specific banks for you. We do this for a profession, and we’re constantly traveling all around the United States looking for rare paper money.

Now, let’s say you’ve stumbled upon a rare Connecticut banknote and you want money fast. The worst thing you could do is bring it to an un-knowing coin dealer at a coin shop, or a local pawn shop. These places typically don’t know the true value and won’t pay nearly as much as we will. 

We’re collectors by nature. We don’t have a brick-and-mortar shop with employees to pay. We offer the most aggressive prices in the country because of this. Consider us serious buyers.

How much is my Connecticut National Bank Note Worth?

As much as we’d like to say your old Connecticut paper money is worth thousands of dollars, the chances of that are pretty slim. But there are some Connecticut national bank notes that are worth thousands of dollars, and we’ve paid that much. The majority of national bank notes from Connecticut that we buy are valued at around $20 to $150. Which is still good money, but nothing to retire from!

With most old paper money, supply and demand are a huge determining factor when trying to figure the value of a Connecticut banknote. There are times when the market is in high demand and the notes are selling for more. We’ve had a few Connecticut national banknote collectors compete over some collections we’ve sold, which heavily increased the value for these bills. 

The fact is, some Connecticut banknotes are in low demand while others are scarce and in high demand. The market for national banknotes has dwindled over the years, but there are still plenty of avid collectors in the community that we stay in close contact with.

Each bank issued different amounts of currency, depending on the demands for the paper money back in the early 1900s in the specific town. 

Some large size paper money from Connecticut can be very valuable. For example, The Clinton National Bank Of Clinton has some large size red seal bills that can be worth thousands of dollars. The bills in pristine condition will be worth even more. 

We wrote a whole in-depth guide about fancy serial numbers you can check out here, but without going into too much detail many collectors enjoy rare serial numbers. For example, the first banknotes printed always start with Serial Number 1. If you have a banknote with a low serial number like Serial Number 1 through 9, there’s a high likelihood your banknote is valuable, regardless of condition.

Like most collectibles, Condition plays a huge factor when determining the value of a Connecticut banknote. A beat-up Connecticut note could be worth $50, while a perfect banknote with no folds could be easily worth hundreds.

One of the last factors and the most volatile would be the market. The market is always fluctuating, and typically follows suit with the economy. During the crash of 2007/2008 we saw a huge dropoff when it came to prices in old paper money. As I’m typing this, we’re currently dealing with the COVID-19 virus that’s negatively impacting the economy (I hope it’s over soon!). But that does not mean your bill isn’t worth good money still.

These are the variables to take into consideration: supply & demand, condition (overall eye appeal matters), the market, and the serial number. If you’re unsure how valuable your Connecticut National Bank Note is, send us a clear photo of the front and back of the bill. We will respond within 24 hours with a free appraisal and our best offer if you want to sell your banknote.

Below is a list of every issuing national currency bank for Connecticut. As you may notice, we love talking about old paper money that was printed around the United States. We would love to talk to you about your old Connecticut banknote. Contact us today, we’re the real deal!
