    Brilliantly Colored Rainbow 1869 Legal Tender Twenty

    Fr. 127 $20 1869 Legal Tender PCGS Choice About New 55.
    As brilliantly colored as any Rainbow $20 we have ever handled. The blue anti-counterfeiting stain is as bold as we have ever seen and the note, save for its conservatively sized margins has the appearance of a Superb Gem. The reason for the AU grade is not apparent through the holder and when that is the case it generally turns out to be a light center fold, but this is conjecture on our part. PCGS has italicized the numerical grade and commented, "Small Repairs," which we are utterly unable to locate but have no doubt that they are correct. When that is the case, it is generally closed edge splits or pinholes, in any event the repairs are invisible through the holder.
