    Superb Gem 1891 Silver Certificate Proof Pair

    Superb $20 Silver Certificate Proof Pair. Face and Back Proofs of the 1891 Silver Certificate Twenties. Both are from the completed plates, and both are razor-sharp Proof impressions where the printing can actually be felt as well as seen. Unlike most Proofs, the face of this note has had colored serial numbers added. They are in the correct blue, and the correct format, with an E followed by five zeros. Hessler illustrates a $10 of this same series and indicates that he is aware of three $20 sets, but this is the only example that we can ever recall having seen. Both the face and back are absolutely Superb, printed on bright white card, and as flawless as they can possibly be. A spectacular pair. (Total: 2 items)
