    Description

    Fr. 1225h $10,000 1900 Gold Certificate PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    This example of this unredeemable note is of the variety that has "Washington Issue" printed in black ink immediately below the left serial number and "Assistant" at center is blacked out. It is payable to the order of the "Federal Reserve Board," too. Upper right serial number has punch-through embossing. This note has the usual roulette cancel for Fr. 1225h. Many of these "fell" into collectors' hands due to the five alarm Washington, DC Old Post Office fire on the night of December 13, 1935. Firefighters tossed many of these cancelled 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 up the notes and go on their way.
