    Description

    Monett, MO - $20 1882 Value Back Fr. 581 The First NB Ch. # (M)5973
    A very scarce type and denomination, especially when Malcolm Trask was assembling his collection in the 1940's and 1950's. Unlike the $5 and $10 examples of this type, we know of no hoards of $20 Value Backs from any bank, so specimens tend to come one at a time, especially high grade pieces. This is the sole $20 Value Back reported from here, with this piece of course new to the census. Nicely margined Very Fine++, with strong purple signatures. Two pinholes which affect little are mentioned solely for the sake of complete accuracy in cataloguing.
    From the collection of Malcolm A. Trask.
