Description:

This is the mailing card for a brick of, most likely, brand new $100 bills being sent from BEP to the Federal Reserve Bank in San Francisco.

It is about 13" long ..... 100 new bills packed tightly is about .41". So there was probably in excess of $330,000 in the registered package. Adjusted for inflation that is in excess of $8 million dollars today.

I do not think this would ever make it in today's postal system!

NOTE: 15 July 1915 is the EDU for the $1 stamp; the 50ct stamp is the rarer on cover cataloging $2,000 and the $1 catalogs $1,000.

APS Cert attesting to EDU of the $1 stamp.

Though not noted on the certificate there apparently may be a disjointed stamp that has fallen off - to the right of the two $1 stamps.

The value of the piece is from the EDU, (2) $1 stamps and the 50ct stamp on cover. A similar item with three $1 stamps sold also by me at a Bennett auction, c. 2012 or so, for $3,450.
