    Description

    Fr. 1225h $10,000 1900 Gold Certificate PMG Very Fine 25.
    This non-redeemable note made payable to the Federal Reserve Board in Washington D.C. was not intended for circulation, but was used only within the banking system. The note is uniface and perforation cancelled. Many of these examples got into the collector community due to the five alarm fire at the Washington, DC Old Post Office on the night of December 13, 1935. Firefighters tossed many of these notes along with other combustible material out of 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. PMG mentions "thinning".
