    Description

    "D. B. Cooper" 1971 Ransom Money. Serial #L69210458B. 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 1.2" x 1.4" in size and irregular in shape with a few small holes. It features partial serial number.


    More Information: Accompanying this note will be a handsome illustrated Certificate of Authenticity from PCGS Currency relating the history of the D. B. Cooper skyjacking notes and confirming "that the serial number of the $20 note illustrated here matches one of the historic notes in the FBI's listing of ransom money given to Cooper, and subsequently found by Ingram." It is hand-signed by not only Jason W. Bradford as president and Laura A. Kessler as vice president of PCGS Currency, but also by Brian Ingram as finder of the notes.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
