    Breathtakingly Brilliant Civil War Era $20 Legal

    Fr. 126b $20 1863 Legal Tender PCGS Apparent Choice New 63.
    The Apparent grade has been assigned for "Small Edge Tears at Top Right". There are two, both of which would require scientific instruments to measure. Save for that, this is an incredible example of an early twenty. The snow white paper on the face of the note makes the 100% fully bright red, green and black inks "pop" with incredible vibrance. We have seen a few technically higher grade pieces that were very nice, but the eye-appeal of this note is second to none.
