Anyone Wanna Suggest An Explanation?

A month or so ago, I bought a package of envelopes from Staples. That package usually lasts me about a year or so because I rarely send anything in an envelope anymore. I removed a few envelopes from the sealed pack and had the balance of the package sitting on a shelf over my desk.  Yesterday, I needed two envelopes and pulled them from the remaining stack.

As I attempted to place a check and bill into the second envelope, I felt something inside. When I removed the obstruction, I was holding a Series 1880 $20 US Legal Tender note, which appears to date from around 1921 to 1922 -- I deduced that from the fact that the bill bears the names of Registrar of the Treasury William S. Elliott and Secretary of the Treasury Frank White, who served together only from May 2, 1921 to January 24, 1922. 

How that $20 bill got into the unopened envelope that was in the Staples package remains an amazing mystery. Who put it there or why is even more puzzling. 


Truly, for one of the few times in my life, I am a loss for words.
