The early horizontal grilles were quite fragile and when they broke, they were replaced with whatever was current in the dealers parts stock (i.e. vertical bar). It's only been in the last 10 years or so that repop horizontal aluminum grilles have hit the market for those fussy restorers.
As to the relative value of a 9N in the 20,000 serial number range, I'd have to say it's a matter of opinion and those opinions will vary. To me, I'd say no, not worth a ton. When you get down into 3 or 4 digit serial numbers, then you start to see collectors get excited.
