Item description

FR 1225h "JACKSON" CGC 67PQ Description FR 1225h 10,000 GOLD CERTIFICATE 1900 (1915) "JACKSON" ULTRA GEM CGC 67PQ! FINEST KNOWN BY ALL COMPANIES! THIS WAS ACTUALLY SIGNED REDEEMED (of course cancelled). THE STORY BEHIND THE 10,000 GOLD CERT'S IS NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING - CAUGHT IN A FIRE, THROWN OUT THE WINDOW OF THE POST OFFICE BLDG. (READ BELOW): THESE NOTES HAVE INCREASED IN PRICE, DRAMATICALLY, OVER THE LAST 2 YEARS! I REMEMBER JUST TWO YEARS AGO IN GEM, WATCHING INsale A PIECE SELLING FOR 5K! THE LAST ONE WE SOLD, ABOUT HALF A YEAR AGO IN 65PQ GEM, SOLD AT 12,500!!! THE ONE BEFORE THAT (ANOTHER HALF YEAR EALIER SOLD FOR 10K IN SAME GRADE! NOW, I BELIEVE THEY ARE AROUND 14,000 IN GEM 65. THE DATE WAS DECEMBER 13TH (FRIDAY THE 13TH) 1935, ON PENNSYLVANIA AVE. IN WASHINGTON DC (POST OFFICE ON 12th). THE FIRST ALARM WENT OFF JUST AFTER MIDNIGHT, BUT SOON BECAME A FULL BLOWN 3 ALARM FIRE, WHICH TOOK PLACE ON THE 6TH FLOOR. THERE WERE NO GAS MASKS, CAUSING 41 FIREMEN TO BE HOSPITALIZED (ALL FULLY RECOVERED). AS YOU CAN IMAGINE THERE WERE DOZENS OF FILE CABINETS, EACH FUELING THE FLAMES... INSIDE SOME OF THESE FILE CABINETS WERE THE "FAMED" 10,000 GOLD CERTIFICATES. IN ORDER TO REDUCE THE FUEL FOR THE FIRE THE CABINETS AND BOXES OF PAPERS WERE THROWN OUT OF THE WINDOWS (INCLUDED IN THESE PAPERS WERE THE BANK NOTES). SLOWLY DRIFTING THROUGH THE AIR, GENTLY FALLING ONTO THE STREETS - AND INTO THE HANDS OF ONLOOKERS (LARGE CROWD) WHO SNATCHED UP THESE BEAUTIFUL NOTES AND TUCKED THEM AWAY! FORTUNATELY SO, OTHERWISE THE COLLECTING COMMUNITY WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PROCURE AND ENJOY THESE BREATHTAKING U.S. BANKNOTES. MANY PIECES THAT HIT THE STREET WERE WATER DAMAGED, PERHAPS THE VAST MAJORITY. THIS GORGEOUS EXAMPLE HAS SEEMED TO OF ESCAPED THE DEMISE OF MANY OF IT'S COUNTERPARTS. A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN SUCH A HIGH GRADE EXAMPLE! OFFERED AT: 28,000 PrettyBordersPlus free Template Maker by ISDN*tek
