    Description

    Fr. 1225h $10,000 1900 Gold Certificate PMG About Uncirculated 55.
    This unredeemable and uniface note was not intended for general circulation, but was used within the Federal Reserve System. It has the usual roulette cancellation at far left that you almost always see on Fr. 1225h pieces. The back label states that the note is water stained. This remark places it at the five alarm Washington, DC Old Post Office fire on the night of December 13, 1935. Firefighters tossed many of these notes along with other combustible material from the windows of a large filing room on the sixth floor. The lucky onlookers below were able to pick the notes up and go on their way. For further details on this conflagration and its aftermath, see "Add a Fr. 1225 Gold Certificate to Your Collection," Paper Money, Society of Paper Money Collectors, September/October 2009, Whole No. 263, pages 382-83.
