The Sharpsville National Bank Of Sharpsville in Pennsylvania printed 2,400 sheets of $10 1902 red seal national bank notes. A print range between 1,000 and 2,500 is pretty standard for red seals. Despite being standard, in the scheme of things that is still an extremely small quantity printed. Collectors love ten dollar 1902 red seals. They usually represent the rarest bank notes printed by any national bank. Don’t let the term “series of 1902” confuse you. These were actually printed for about six years between 1902 and 1908. That is obviously a very short issue period which means that many red seals are quite rare. Each note has a portrait of William McKinley. Be sure to check the number under McKinley. If it is #1 then you are dealing with a note from the first sheet of bank notes issued. Number one bank notes are worth even more money than the already rare red seals.
