Description"D. B. Cooper" 1971 Ransom Money. Serial #C13871652A. Series 1963A $20 Federal Reserve Note. Certified and encapsulated by PCGS Currency with a custom insert picturing the 1971 artist's sketch of the sunglasses-wearing skyjacker. Found by eight-year-old Brian Ingram along the banks of the Columbia River in Washington on February 10, 1980, this is one of the only known group of currency notes that can be linked to the historic and infamous event.
All the notes from this group were damaged by their exposure to the elements. This present example is approximately 4.5" x 1.75" with a partial Jackson portrait, two complete serial numbers, the series notation, and portions of both engraved signatures visible.
The D. B. Cooper Story (III): Cooper's hijacking note to the flight attendant, printed in felt-tip pen and in all capital letters, read, "I have a bomb in my briefcase. I will use it if necessary. I want you to sit next to me. You are being hijacked." He dictated his demands to her: $200,000 in unmarked $20 bills and two sets of parachutes-two main back chutes and two emergency chest chutes. The items were to be delivered to the plane when it landed at the Seattle-Tacoma airport; if the demands were not met, D. B. Cooper said that he would blow up the plane.
