Description"D. B. Cooper" 1971 Ransom Money. Serial #L32700814A. 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" x 1.4" with a partial Jackson portrait, two incomplete serial numbers, and the handwritten initials of the FBI agent who originally inventoried the bills soon after Ingram discovered them.
The D. B. Cooper Story (II): A few minutes into the flight, Cooper handed his hijacking demand note to a pretty young flight attendant. From a period news account: "I thought he was trying to hustle me," said the stewardess, Florence Schaffner. "I stuffed the note in my purse, and he motioned that I should take it out and read it." Cooper told her, "Miss, you'd better look at that note. I have a bomb."
