    Exceptional $20 National Gold Bank Note

    San Francisco, CA - $20 1870 Fr. 1152 The First National Gold Bank Ch. # 1741
    This is another exceptional National Gold Bank Note and one of the finest we've handled for the denomination. The paper is bright and attractive, without a trace of repairs or restoration. Nearly perfect margins frame the design and the penned signatures remain strong. This piece is graded PMG Very Fine 25, with only one $20 National Gold Bank Note having been graded higher. The rest of the population report is comprised of Fine or lower graded examples. In April of this year, the note consecutive to this was offered as part of the Thomas M. Flynn Collection. We loved the originality and, with a grade of Fine-Very Fine, it realized $63,250. Expect this outstanding National Gold Bank Note to likely exceed that price level tonight.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
