A "privately printed" Series of 1928A $10 Federal Reserve Note confiscated by the Post Office in 1930 with internal Post Office documentation attesting to the circumstances.
Official post office penalty envelope from Schenectady, New York is inscribed:
"Counterfeit 10 / Please give to Mr. Winnie, Asst P.M. / Gidley"
The note originally enclosed in this envelope is also present, and reads:
"Mar 4, 1930
$10.00 Counterfeit received from Craw St. in remittance for MO Mar 1/30
A very rare and supposedly unattainable example of a fully documented piece of confiscated currency, worthy of a serious paper currency aficionado's "black cabinet" collection.
Also a stunning numismatic/philatelic combination item, and remarkable postal history use of a Post Office Official Business penalty envelope for the postal stationery collector seeking exhaustive completeness.
