1905 $20 Gold Certificate Serial# A404320 with the signatures of Lyon/Treat. Friedberg# 1180. Plate# D33/1. Graded 55 by PCGS. Technicolor $20s have always been popular amongst paper money collectors. This lovely Technicolor has very nice margins! Dark printing, great color, vivid detail and fresh appeal. Ready for the astute collector. No pinholes, rips, or tears. The gold certificate was used from 1882 to 1933 in the United States as a form of paper currency. Each certificate gave its holder title to its corresponding amount of gold coin. Therefore, this type of paper currency was intended to represent actual gold coinage. In 1933 the practice of redeeming these notes for gold coins was ended by the U.S. government and until 1964 it was actually illegal to possess these notes (in 1964 these restrictions were lifted, primarily to allow collectors to own examples legally, however the issue technically converted to standard 'legal tender' with no connection to gold).
