Description:  1882 $100 value back national bank notes are extremely rare.  They were only printed by two banks, The Winters National Bank of Dayton, Ohio and The Canal-Commercial National Bank of New Orleans, Louisiana.  These are actually more appealing to a large size currency collector that they are to national bank note collectors.  A state collector of Ohio or Louisiana notes most likely won’t want to pay the price needed to obtain one of these notes.  However, people who collect rare large size United States currency are able to pay premiums for truly scarce items like this.

Right now there are five examples of these notes known to exist.  The term value back is derived from the fact that the back of each note states the face value of the bill (see below).  We are interested buyers, please contact us if you have something available.
