Any time you see a print range between 1,000 and 2,500 you can assume that the bank was small and that their notes could be fairly scarce.

That doesn’t automatically mean that these are worth thousands of dollars, but they could be. Collectors often don’t differentiate between original series and 1875 notes because they look so similar.
