Description"D. B. Cooper" 1971 Ransom Money. Serial #I06638737A. Series 1969 $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 4.25" x 1.5" with a partial (and damaged) Jackson portrait, one complete serial number, and the handwritten initials of the FBI agent who originally inventoried the bills soon after Ingram discovered them.
The D. B. Cooper Story (IV): The flight attendant, Florence Schaffner, informed the pilot, William Scott of Cooper's hijacking threat. The pilot then notified air traffic control at Seattle-Tacoma for instructions who, after conferring with the police, the FBI, and the airline president, told him to cooperate with Cooper. Scott told Schaffner to try to ascertain if the bomb was real. Cooper opened his briefcase for her where she saw red cylinders, a large battery, and wires- enough to convince her that it was a bomb.
