    Stunning Gem Rainbow $20

    Fr. 127 $20 1869 Legal Tender PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    Perfectly centered and printed examples of the most coveted United States Currency design types are captivating. Series 1869 $20 Legal Tenders are revered for their stunning color palette, employing a deep red seal, black design details, blue serial numbers and a deep swath of anti-counterfeiting blue ink and colored fibers cascading through the design. The margins on the face are simply perfect, the look that separates Superbs from the Gems. A deep, rich green back adds to the eye appeal. Just one other Gem has appeared on the market in the last three years, a Gem 66PPQ that realized $54,050 in a weaker market. Buyers can expect to pay six figures to get into the Superb Gem grade range, with a 67 EPQ and 66PPQ realizing $105,750 and $123,375 in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
