    Brightly Colored and Very Well Margined $20 1863 Interest Bearing Note

    Fr. 197a $20 1863 Interest Bearing Note PMG Very Fine 25.
    A really nice looking example, this offering is a very rare $20 Civil War era Interest Bearing note. The Track & Price census indicates only 26 examples known to the collecting community, including this one. The note has seen some circulation, but has wonderfully bright colors, particularly the red and green overprints which are as flashy as they would be on an Uncirculated example. PMG has not net graded the note, but has mentioned minor repairs. We can spot some strengthening at the edges of the vertical and horizontal center folds, but certainly no rebuilding of the design.
