    Fr. 1225h $10,000 1900 Gold Certificate PMG Choice About Unc 58.
    This note was not intended for circulation but was used within the Federal Reserve System. Unlike other notes, the back is blank and there are perforation cancellations at the left in the portrait that states this note is payable only to the treasurer or a Federal Reserve Bank. This is a very colorful and bright note with a small amount of wrinkling visible, along with virtually no traces of the staining that is usually found. The very light staining places this piece 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. This example has "Assistant" at top center blacked out and an added "Deputy" at bottom center. Minor varieties of these notes exist that are not detailed in the Friedberg reference. One of the finer specimens of this unique item that we have offered over the years.
