    Newly Discovered Twenty Dollar Demand Note

    Fr. 11 $20 1861 Demand Note Fine. This previously unreported Twenty Dollar Demand Note from the Trask Collection has not seen the light of day since the late '40s or early '50s. It brings the total known for this number to seven, and the total known for all Twenty Dollar Demand Notes to right around 20. It's a remarkably problem-free piece, with none of the replaced paper restorations that are so commonly seen today on major early rarities. A few minor edge splits have been closed, and the note has one or two inconsequential pinholes, but it is an essentially perfect example of a well circulated, but undamaged note. Both signatures are strong, the colors are excellent, and every letter of every word of the design is clear.
    From the collection of Malcolm A. Trask.
