    Fr. 1225c $10,000 1900 Gold Certificate PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    A rarer Friedberg number for this unredeemable design as Track & Price has documented only 32 different serial numbers and that figure does not include this example that was made payable to the Farmers & Mechanics National Bank of Philadelphia on November 9, 1908. The back has the penned endorsement of H(enry) B. Barstow. He was the cashier of charter number 538 from 1904-13. The back also has a receiving date stamp of November 16, 1908 for the US Assistant Treasurer in Philadelphia. This ink stamp and the note being punch hole cancelled are mentioned on the third party back label. This note does not have the water staining that is often seen on these. In fact, our inspection finds nice color and strong embossing of the serial numbers and the Treasury Seal. A look at the PMG Population Report finds that they have graded only one Fr. 1225c equal and one higher. Overall, it is a great note to represent the type.
