    Description

    Fr. 1225 $10000 1900 Gold Certificate Very Fine-Extremely Fine. Punch canceled at the left end but free of the water marks that plague almost all notes of this issue. These notes exist because of a fire in a government post office in Washington, D.C. in 1935. Firefighters tossed stacks of these canceled notes out onto the streets, and passersby picked up examples and took them home. They, of course, are no longer legal tender, and are rumored to be illegal to own or possess. No one has made a test case out of one, however, and they often sell in public auctions, coin and currency shows, and in coin shops. A highly desirable collectible and an impressive note.
