    Superb First Charter Twenty

    Paris, IL - $20 1875 Fr. 431 The First NB Ch. # 1555
    We have maintained for many years that First Charter Twenties are among the most underrated and undervalued of all National types, but it is only when a note like this appears that one truly realizes just how uncommon these items really are, especially in the very highest grade ranges. This note is absolutely gorgeous, with a vivid red overprint, bright paper, and bold pen signatures between four margins that are more than adequate to carry the Gem grade. The reverse is simply extraordinary, with the heaviest inking we have ever seen on any note of this type, making the green virtually iridescent and allowing the central vignette of the Baptism of Pocahontas to take on an almost three dimensional appearance. If you are searching for a truly exceptional First Charter $20 for your type set, this is a note you should bring home this evening. Gem Crisp Uncirculated.
