    Brilliantly Colored Near-Gem Rainbow Twenty

    Fr. 127 $20 1869 Legal Tender PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ. This lovely Rainbow Twenty falls just a drop short of the full Gem grade. It certainly appears to be a 66 or better when viewed from the broadly margined, explosively colored face. The back design is a tad high, which likely accounts for the rather conservative 64EPQ grade. This Type is considered by many collectors to be the most striking of the Rainbow series. The type is photographed both sides on page 97 of the Dauer reference. The Dauers have also used a blow-up of the back of this type to illustrate the intricate engraving, which repeats both the Arabic numeral 20 and the Roman XX over 100 times - partially as a design element and partially as an anti-counterfeiting device.
