    Description

    Fr. 129 $20 1878 Legal Tender Superb Gem New. We've sold quite a few pieces from this run of uncirculated 1878 Twenties, and this one is as nice as any, and considerably nicer than most. The note is perfectly centered on both sides, with huge margins all the way around. This is the variety with the blue security stain and the linked repetitive USUSUS watermark generally seen only on Fourth Issue Fractional Currency. This piece was previously in a CGA-67 holder, which pedigrees the note to the Levitan Collection. The note has since been cut from the holder, but the paper strip is still with the note. A simply spectacular example, worthy of the finest collection.
