    Birdsboro, PA - $20 1902 Plain Back Fr. 652 The First NB Ch. # 3905
    This pen signed beauty is just a beast of a note, with oversized margins, bright white paper, a vivid blue overprint, and the appearance of a note which was printed about 15 minutes ago. It is one of only four $20 Plain Backs from any bank to receive the coveted PMG grade of Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ (with only one example graded higher), and it is guaranteed to please even the most finicky of collectors. Any estimate here is merely a guess, as we have never before handled a $20 Blue Seal in this high a grade, but for those looking for the very finest available, this is a note that should be brought home tonight.
