    Pleasing Fr. 374 $20 "Ornate Back"

    Fr. 374 $20 1890 Treasury Note PMG Very Fine 30.
    This scarce 1890 $20 Treasury Note is in a pleasing grade. The left end displays engraver Charles Schlecht's portrait of John Marshall, adapted from the painting by Harry Inman; a small red treasury seal is at the right. As on the previous, featuring an ornate green back with its distinctive, wave-like TWENTY in the center. This is the final 1890 $20, and also the most available with over 100 notes known. Many are repaired, but not Mike's problem-free example. Very attractive on both sides, with a colorful, wonderfully detailed green back. Mike bought this note privately at the 1990 Memphis show, and it will fit perfectly into a mid-grade type set.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
