    Fr. 374 $20 1890 Treasury Note PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ. A run of about twenty uncirculated examples are known of this number, and those are just about the only uncs. This piece is part of that run, but it has been known to collectors far longer than its serial-number neighbors. It was part of the Grinnell Collection, and sold by Barney Bluestone in the first Grinnell sale on November 25, 1944. After that, the note became part of the Robert F. Schermerhorn Collection. We've handled a number of pieces from this short run, and this is as nice as any of them... and nicer than most. Once the EPQ designation is assigned, centering becomes the limiting factor of the grade, and in this case, the centering is plenty good enough for Gem but short of Superb. The note has magnificent color, ideal back centering and apparently perfect original paper surfaces, as that is what we believe EPQ designates. 1890 Treasury Twenties, while not rare when all grades are considered, are certainly rare, and will remain forever so, in 65 EPQ holders. The note is pictured on page 230 of the Dauers' book, along with a short biography of John Marshall. Marshall was one of the most influential Chief Justices of the Supreme Court.
