    CGA Graded Gem Uncirculated 68 $20 Brown Back

    Louisville, KY - $20 1882 Brown Back Fr. 501 The Citizens NB Ch. # (S)2164
    A magnificent Brown Back which may well rank as one of the very finest notes known of its type and denomination. The margins are huge all around, the inks bright and vivid, and the signatures black and bold. It has been encapsulated and graded as Gem Uncirculated 68 by CGA, a lofty grade indeed but one which appears fully justified upon viewing the note. If condition rarity ever achieves the importance in currency that it holds in coins this note could well be worth many multiples of an "ordinary" Gem $20 Brown Back, but for now that premium is considerably less, perhaps offering an opportunity for those with long range horizons.
