One Million Dollar Currency Strap For $10,000 Notes Dated February 29, 1904 PMG Holder
Over the years there were various types of ten-thousand dollar notes produced by the United States Bureau of Engraving and Printing. These include large size notes from the legal tender, Federal Reserve and gold certificate series as well as small size notes from the Federal Reserve and gold certificate series. The typeface is consistent with usage in the late nineteenth century, but is not conclusive for that time period. However, the date stamped on the strap indicates that the currency within would have had to have been the 1878 legal tender issue or any one of the six gold certificate issues. Given the fact that the strap is not listed as containing gold certificates, it might be assumed that it was used for the 1878 legal tender issue featuring Andrew Jackson. It is believed that all notes of this issue have been redeemed. The strap itself is decorated with a pair of double boxes containing a repeating petal-type motif. Leap year date as well.
