    Description

    Fr. 1225h $10,000 1900 Gold Certificate PMG Uncirculated 62.
    This non-redeemable note was not intended for circulation, but was used only within the Federal Reserve System. The note is uniface. There are perforation cancellations at the left in the portrait area that state that this note is, "Payable only to the Treasurer of the U.S. or a Federal Reserve Bank." This example has the usual water staining seen on many of these notes. The 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 merry 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 not blacked out. Minor varieties of these notes exist that are not detailed in the Friedberg reference.
