    Rare and Gorgeous Fr. 126b 1863 $20 Legal

    Fr. 126b $20 1863 Legal Tender PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    This early twenty has perfect colors of the inks and paper as well as solid even margins all the way around. This is a very rare type in top grade, as almost all of these thin paper notes have edge problems even if they are fully New. The note is strictly original and well embossed and this beauty has survived 150 years without a mark, split or repair of any kind. Between the two grading services, a mere four examples have been graded at the Gem Uncirculated 65 level, with just one higher, and, according to Track & Price, one has not crossed the auction block in nearly three years. Expect this Gem to be one of the highlights of this exciting Platinum Night offering.
