    Description

    Philadelphia, PA - $20 1882 Brown Back Fr. 493 The Third NB Ch. # 234
    This $20 is an example of a Brown Back 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. The paper has plenty of snap plus the signatures are dark. There are a few small notches along the bottom edge. Fine.
