    Springfield, MO - $20 1882 Brown Back Fr. 502 The National Exchange Bank Ch. # (M)5082 PCGS Apparent Fine 15.
    This is a very scarce Springfield charter that issued Brown Backs only during its brief 12-year existence from 1897 to 1909. One of barely a dozen notes overall in the census, this moderately circulated example is one of only two $20 Brown Backs reported and the only one of the pair to have ever been publicly offered. It has nice color and solid paper. It was assigned an apparent grade for a couple of insignificant flecks of paper clip rust on the back.
