Description:  Legal tender twenty dollar notes as shown below are rare in high grades, but quite available and relatively affordable in lower grades.  A lot of these notes were printed and many are still around.  All notes were signed by Chittenden and Spinner.

Be careful, because unlike most U.S. currency, there are a lot of fake early legal tenders floating around today.  Some are quite deceptive.

Variations:  Long story short, there are 8 different varieties to this issue.  It is almost impossible to list the varieties without writing a thesis.  So, no matter what you have, just send us a picture of it.  We would be happy to share our opinion on authenticity and value.
