    Twenty Dollar 1890 Fancy Back Treasury Note

    Fr. 374 $20 1890 Treasury Note PCGS Choice New 63.
    Great color adds to the attractiveness of this note along with traces of embossing. The portrait of John Marshall, the fourth Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, was engraved by Charles Schlecht based on a painting by Henry Inman. The portrait was also used on $500 Federal Reserve Notes and $1000 bonds. This $20 Treasury Note with the ornate back design and small pink Treasury seal is a lovely example for the grade and will make a nice addition to the next collection it enters.
