Looking for Help With an Eastman College Currency Note

Hi all,

I am a brand new member to SPMC. I just joined today with hopes of finding someone that can maybe help me locate info on a college currency note I just purchased last night from a dealer at our local coin club's monthly meeting. This $20 note is from Eastman's College Bank in Rochester, NY. While I have a few other notes from the Eastman Business College (in Poughkeepsie) that are listed, I can't seem to find any info on this particular note in Schingoethe's book on college currency or anywhere online. I do find a listing for an alternate $20 note for Rochester with same color scheme that has a large eagle as the center vignette. I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance for any possible assistance.

One of these notes was sold on Heritage Auctions (ha.com) in Sept 2003.  It sold then for $401.50, with this description:  Poughkeepsie, NY- Eastman's College Bank $20 1863 Schingoethe UNL
A scarce early Eastman issue which is an unlisted denomination in the NY-1940 series. Bright Extremely Fine.

You can find out more from the Heritage site, but here is the image of that note:
