    Gorgeous 1869 Rainbow $20 Legal

    Fr. 127 $20 1869 Legal Tender PCGS About New 53.
    All of the designs in the 1869 Rainbow series are attractive for their color. To our eye, the $20 has the additional bonus of being an artistically-pleasing design even before the flashy colors are considered. This one has color equal to any. The reason for the 53 grade is not discernible to us through the third-party holder. Perhaps the note was downgraded for the "small edge tear at bottom right of center," which PCGS has mentioned and although it almost certainly exists, we are utterly unable to locate it. Recent comps for Rainbow $20s in this grade simply do not exist. No 53s have sold. There were four 55s between 1998 and 2006, but those prices are antiquated. The closest we can find is a PMG 58 EPQ which sold for $16,450 in 2016.
