Friedberg 127. 1869 $20 Legal Tender Note. PMG Choice Uncirculated 64. Bold red and blue colors are featured on this well margined and fresh 1869 $20 Legal Tender Note. A side profile of Alexander Hamilton (facing right) is seen at left. Standing at right is the goddess Liberty, holding a shield aloft in her right arm and a walking stick in her right. She wears a helmet adorned with an eagle on top. The allegorical image is based on a drawing by John W. Casilear who earlier was a partner in the banknote printing firm Toppan, Carpenter, Casilear & Co. A large reddish-pink spiked Treasury Seal is just to the left of center, while like colored serial number panels are to the bottom left and top right. The engraved signatures of Treasury officials Allison and Spinner are found along the bottom edge of the design. This type comes on paper with a blue tinted security streak based on Wilcoxs 1866 patent. The back is boldly printed in green and is geometric in appearance. The Legal Tender clause and anti-counterfeiting language appear within a circular frame at center, flanked by a large Roman numeral XX at left and 20 at right. Series of 1869 notes were issued from October 19, 1869 to July 25, 1874 and 3,648,000 notes of the $20 denomination were printed.The plate impression is boldly inked and sharply detailed on this example. Rich red overprint inks are displayed along with deep blue printed serial numbers. The blue tint of the Wilcox security paper is boldly colored adding to the "Rainbow" aesthetic. <em>From Lyn Knights sale of February 2004, lot 1319. </em>
