COUNTERFEIT SERIES 1928A $10 FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE
Confiscated at a post office with internal P.O. documentation.


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
J. Ryan
Cashier"


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.
