This $20 paper bill was issued by the Exchange Bank of Virginia, which was known to have issued paper money from at least the 1840's up until the first part of the Civil War.

The Exchange Bank of Virginia's parent bank was based in Norfolk, but had many branches throughout Virginia. These locations can be seen hand-written on the notes. Additionally, dates would also be hand-written, and bank officers would personally sign each note.

George Washington is portrayed at the left, and John Marshall can be seen opposite; Marshall being one of the most important Chief Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. Pictured in the middle are the ruins of Jamestown.
