The larger notes from 1914 are rare enough as it is, but this is a star note. Not many of these are around. It helps boost the value of the bill considerably, and I have no doubt it's genuine.
- Fact 1: Before 1929, many paper banknotes in the US were large-sized notes, measuring 3x7.5". Modern small-sized bills measure 2.5x6".
- Fact 2: Large-sized currency was in circulation in the United States from 1863 to 1929, when the Treasury switched to the smaller bills we still use today.
- Fact 3: The $20 bill originally had a portrait of Grover Cleveland on the face. Andrew Jackson was used starting in 1928.
- Fact 4: Andrew Jackson vehemently opposed the National Bank and paper money during his presidency, making his placement on the $20 bill somewhat ironic.
- Fact 5: The reverse of this bill features a steam locomotive and a steam ship, which were the two prevailing modes of transportation at the time.
