    The highest-known denomination from this St. Genevieve office and unlisted in Haxby. A rarity, this example has been in the Collection for decades, but was significantly upgraded later.

The Jefferson bust vignette is at the upper right, but not titled above. The branch obligation is across with the title incorporated in the left center. The end panels are styled as others in the series with TWENTY at the left and MISSOURI at the right. Issued to Wm. Shannon, as always. Plate A. No. [? ] (faded). Signed by John Dales as cashier and Aug. Chouteau as bank president. Noted with "Edge Tears and Minor Damage; Tape Repair on Back." The signatures are faint, but the note is very rare.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
