    Newly Discovered Fairbanks Alaska $20 Type 2

    Fairbanks, AK - $20 1929 Ty. 2 First NB Ch. # 7718
    While large notes, particularly Red Seals, are often available from this bank for those collectors willing to pay the price, Series 1929 specimens are another story entirely, with Track & Price showing just one offering of any kind during the past dozen years. This new to the census example is certainly not pretty, but is not nearly as bad as the PMG assigned grade of Good 6 Net with the notation "Damaged" on the back makes it seem. We will let our bidders make their own determination, but this note is only the second Type 2 twenty recorded to date, with the one other example not having appeared on the market since a sole auction appearance twenty years ago.
