Description:  1869 marked the first year that the well used Alexander Hamilton and Victory design was used.  Despite the availability of later years, the 1869 $20 legal tender note is quite rare and popular.  It is a member of the 1869 rainbow series.  Rainbow notes get their nickname because the paper they were printed on has lots of different color tones.  Rainbow notes are generally available for the ten dollar denomination and lower.  Starting at twenty dollars, they become expensive.

1869 $20 bills have a serial number printed in blue ink; other lower denomination rainbow notes have red serial numbers.  All rainbow serial numbers end with a star symbol – but they are not replacement stars.

Variations:  All 1869 $20 notes were signed by Allison and Spinner.  The condition and serial number of each note will differ, but all the notes have the same signatures and design.
