    Gem $10,000 1900 Gold Certificate

    Fr. 1225h $10,000 1900 Gold Certificate PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    Redeemed and cancelled, as are all known notes of this issue. The surviving examples of this series all came from an incident in 1935, when there was a fire at a Post Office building in Washington, D.C. where cancelled examples of these notes were stored. Firefighters threw several stacks of these cancelled notes onto the sidewalks, where they were picked up by local passersby. This piece is punch cancelled, and unlike the vast majority of survivors, does not have the waterstaining which is near ubiquitous for this type. This type is quite common as AU and lower grade Unc, but the 65PPQ grade changes the game considerably. This particular note was cancelled by the United States Treasury on 9-6-1916.
