    Serial Number 1 $20 Brown Back

    Pottstown, PA - $20 1882 Brown Back Fr. 496 The National Iron Bank Ch. # 3494 PMG Very Fine 30.
    An appealing serial number 1 $20 Brown Back from a less available Pottstown bank that bears a great trade name for the Keystone State. It is one of just a half dozen number 1 $20 Brown Backs reported for all of Pennsylvania. Featuring great color and bold pen signatures, it has had some minor repairs and there is a signature written on the face but its overall appearance is quite attractive. It also represents the earlier, and scarcer, variety of $20 Brown Back with the vertical charter number.
