    Description

    Fr. 1225h $10,000 1900 Gold Certificate PMG Choice Uncirculated 63 Net.
    Paper originality and nice color are found on this unredeemable note. The Net grade is for staining. This is common for many Fr. 1225s. The staining places this piece at the five-alarm Washington, DC Old Post Office fire on the night of Friday 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.
