PMG Extremely Fine 40 EPQ. Depicted on the face is Silas Wright, a United States senator and later governor of New York. If he had anything particular to do with gold, he is not remembered in this context today. Indeed, he died on August 27, 1847, before the Gold Rush. The face has "GOLD" in a yellow-gold overprint at top and a gold background to the serial numbers.Backed by gold coin, repayable (unusual word) to the bearer on demand. The Treasury Seal adds color. The back is printed entirely in gold-orange and is more distinctly defined than the backs of some other gold-printed issues. The orange-gold color tended to fade. Today, notes with bright backs are worth more than those with faded color, regardless of the grade. This lightly circulated note displays vividly printed inks and broadly margined paper. The visual appeal is outstanding with the allure of a much higher grade.
