    Brilliantly Colored "Department Series" 1882 Gold Twenty

    Fr. 1176 $20 1882 Gold Certificate PMG Very Fine 25.
    Track & Price reports 26 examples with this new number bringing the total up to 27. This mid-grade PMG Very Fine 25 carries the notation on the back "small tears." We can find only one, which is at the lower right corner, that corner has the largest margins on the note, and if that is what we believe is the only small tear, it appears as though it could easily be trimmed off. The colors are incredible for the grade, with the gold ink on both the face and back fully brilliant. These seldom reach the market in any grade and virtually never as pleasing Very Fines. A very nice note that could approach five figures.
