    Description

    Fr. 191a $20 1864 Compound Interest Treasury Note Fine Damaged. Last on the auction market in 1976 at a Bowers and Ruddy sale, this piece is well margined and retains excellent color. It is a very presentable note with a few minor problems. There are two tears in the top edge that have been tape repaired, and half of the bronze "R" in Treasury has fallen out and been taped replaced. The note was apparently once owned by the late Maurice Burgett as his penciled cost code appears in the lower left corner. The code in this case reads "COTTT." The five digits indicates he paid over $1000 for this note. Although we have never quite broken the code, the letters used were based on the two words "Coal Bucket."
