    Beautiful Near-Gem Series 1875 $20

    Quincy, IL - $20 1875 Fr. 434 The Ricker National Bank Ch. # 2519 PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    A lovely 1875 $20 from this private-name bank, this example is signed by Geo. E. Ricker as Cashier and Henry Ricker as President. Unusually for a First Charter example, this piece bears a rather fancy title layout as well - a clear precursor of what was to follow in Brown Backs. It's one of the finer PMG-graded notes, and its margins on both sides are complete, wide to broad in places. The face printing is superbly sharp with lovely definition of the red Treasury seal, series, and charter number. The back is amazing with the deeply inked vignette exhibiting an extraordinary depth of field within its vibrant green frame. There are few examples known of this type that exceed the attractiveness of this offering. Last November, we sold an identically graded example from a Paris, IL bank for $26,400.
