    Description

    Philadelphia, PA - $20 1882 Brown Back Fr. 493 The Third National Bank Ch. # 234 PMG Extremely Fine 40.
    A nice looking example of a $20 Brown Back from this large-only Philadelphia bank, this offering represents the variety with the scarce vertical charter number and high Treasury Seal design. September 1890 saw the switch to the horizontal charter number and low Treasury Seal variety. The horizontal variety greatly outnumbers the vertical variety. This is a most attractive piece with great color, solid margins, and dark signatures. Last on the market in a 1993 auction, its only detracting factor is lightening of some minor stains.
