Description:  Compound interest treasury notes are rare, even for the twenty dollar denomination.  These were bought for the specific purpose of cashing in on the interest.  So if you didn’t redeem your note, you didn’t get your extra money.  Because of that, almost all of these notes were redeemed and destroyed.

$20 treasury notes show a mortar cannon at the bottom of each note.  Abraham Lincoln is on the right hand side of each note and the left hand side shows a woman who is supposed to represent Victory.  Each $20 note has a red treasury seal and two red serial numbers.

If you have one of these notes, please contact us.  Your note is at least rare, and probably very valuable.
