    Beautiful and Original Fancy Back Treasury $20

    Fr. 374 $20 1890 Treasury Note PCGS Choice New 63PPQ.
    This note was typical of the quality that Jim O'Neal sought after. It was last offered as part of his collection and realized nearly $25,000. Our description in that wonderful offering read, "A beautifully bright, unusually attractive fancy back Treasury twenty that falls right in the middle of the run that has brought the ability to acquire an Uncirculated example to the last three generations of collectors. Even the Grinnell note was part of this run, which appears to be 25 pieces ranging from A1201550 to A1201575 although nine of the in-between numbers have never shown up. This example has great colors, good paper originality, and it would be a Superb Gem if the bottom margin was just a tiny bit broader." Those nine examples have yet to make an appearance and collectors have no qualms about jumping on a note of this caliber at prices above...
