    Gem Twenty Dollar Treasury Note

    Fr. 375 $20 1891 Treasury Note Gem New. This note is from the middle-of-the-run that has supplied the only known Uncirculated examples of this type. It's only prior auction appearance was in August of 2000 when it realized $13,700 in a Lyn Knight Sale. This type had been unavailable in high grade until a decade ago, when about a dozen Uncirculated notes unexpectedly appeared. John Marshall, whose portrait appears on this note, served as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. He died in 1835. The portrait on the note was engraved by Charles Schlecht, from an oil done by Harry Inman. This note has wonderful margins, as well as original paper surfaces. A beautiful piece that is sure to illicit considerable bidder activity.
