Though the 1867 $20 is available by the hundreds in Mint State, it rarely comes as nice as Akers suggested years ago. He wrote that a number of "choice or gem quality" examples existed, but they simply have not shown up yet -- certainly not at auction or in the population reports at PCGS or NGC. In fact, the best certified examples are a few pieces of MS63 quality. Thus, this date should now be considered under-rated in top condition.
