The City National Bank Of Wagoner in Oklahoma printed 308 sheets of $50 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. We often talk about how rare 1902 $50 red seals are. However, that rarity gets lifted to a whole different level when we start talking about $50 territorial red seals. Only two are currently known to exist and they are both from San Juan, Puerto Rico. In fact, only six banks in the entire country issued the type (the other five issuers are all from Oklahoma).
1902 $50 Red Seal Territorial National Bank Note
The City National Bank Of Wagoner printed 308 sheets of $100 1902 territorial red seal national bank notes. There was a single $100 bill and $50 bill on each sheet of national bank notes of this type. There are currently only three 1902 territorial $100 red seals known to exist and one of those is in a museum. That total is spread across the entire country. So needless to say, these are rare birds indeed. Just like with the fifties, only six banks even printed $100 red seals as territorials. Obviously $100 was a lot of money back when these were printed (between 1902 and 1908). This is not something that was saved as a curiosity item. The ones that are known to exist were almost certainly saved by accident and rediscovered at a time when they had become collectible. At the time these were originally circulating no one knew these would one day become great rarities.
