Friedberg 306b. 1878 $20 Silver Certificate of Deposit. PMG About Uncirculated 50. Here is another extraordinary rarity from the D. Brent Pogue Collection. Just two examples of this countersigned "Triple Signature" 1878 $20 Silver Certificate of Deposit variety are known to collectors. The boldly penned countersignature of A.U. Wyman is prominently displayed to the left of center. Notes of this catalog number were payable at the office of the Treasurer at Washington D.C. Other varieties could be paid at Sub-Treasury offices in New York and San Francisco. Engraved signatures of Treasury officials Scofield and Gilfillan are found at right. Commodore Stephen Decatur, a national hero in the early 19th century, is portrayed at right. A large red Treasury Seal is at top center while "TWENTY" is spelled out below in red. The back design is printed in black with SILVER prominently displayed inside a series of patterns in a straight row at center. The type is printed on blue tinted security paper made under the Wilcox patent of 1866.The only other example known is the serial number A1 note that last sold publicly for $184,000 in an October 2006 auction. This example has passed through the collections of numismatic luminaries such as F.C.C. Boyd, William A. Philpott, Andrew Shiva and D. Brent Pogue among others. Additionally it is the Friedberg plate note. The grading service has added a comment for "Minor Restoration." This appears to be near top center. Nevertheless, this is an ultra-rarity, a catalog number that only two collectors can own at any given time.Stephen Decaturs remarkable life was regrettably cut short at the age of 41 when he was killed in a duel with rival naval officer James Barron on March 22, 1820. His funeral in Washington D.C. was attended by more than 10,000 people, including President James Monroe, the justices of the Supreme Court and most of Congress. <em>From Friedberg Illustration; F.C.C. Boyd; Abe Kosoffs sale of October 1951; William A. Philpott; Andrew Shiva; Spink Americas sale of May 1995, lot 339. </em>
