    Description

    Fr. 2402 $20 1928 Gold Certificate. Very Fine.
    A bright and evenly circulated $20 Gold Certificate that should find a welcome home in someone's small type collection. When the United States went off the Gold Standard in 1933, it was made illegal to possess any Gold Certificates for any reason. If the government found out you had a Gold Certificate during this time, you could be visited by the Secret Service. They would pick up your Gold Certificate and give you a receipt. Luckily, that did not happen with this example. This law was reversed in 1964.
