The obverse of these Legal Tender Notes features Alexander Hamilton in a portrait. Hamilton is depicted in right-profile relief on the left side of the note. On the opposite end, there is a depiction of the allegorical figure of Victory. We also find the Treasury seal and the serial number, both of which are in red ink.
On the reverse of 1880 Legal Tender Notes the denomination is depicted in each corner. On the upper left and lower right corners, it is shown in Roman numerals. On the upper right and lower left, we see it in standard numerical form. The words Twenty Dollars are also spelled out in three different sections of the note.
The $20 Legal Tender Notes were introduced in Series 1862. These large format notes were also known as United States Notes and featured a version of Lady Liberty. The next four series arrived in 1863, 1869, 1875, and 1880. Each one featured a portrait of Alexander Hamilton, a Founding Father and the nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury. The designs on these three series were fairly consistent with each other, with only slight variations on each. Following the 1880 Series, the $20 denomination was discontinued.
