    Beautiful Twenty Dollar 1880 Silver

    Fr. 311 $20 1880 Silver Certificate PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45.
    The portrait of naval hero Stephen Decatur appears at the right side of this note. The center is filled with the large round brown seal and two brown X's which give this and all other 20s of this era the nickname "Double Sawbucks." The note has the overall appearance of a high end AU. However, PMG has commented on the back about minor restorations. They are indeed correct, although the restorations are done with such consummate skill that they are all but undetectable. This worthy piece is one of the better looking examples we have ever seen of this type.
