Fun Facts about the $1000 Bill

I’m a sucker for trivia and one of the most educational (and fun) posts I wrote was the fun facts about the $500 bill [3], a bill that was no longer used after 1969 in an effort to combat organized crime. There were a lot of interesting facts from the $500 bill so I thought we could have some fun and do the same for the $1000 bill, which was also discontinued that same year.

There were two “modern” versions of the $1,000 bill, one issued in 1918 and again in 1934. The Series 1918 had a Blue Seal and featured Alexander Hamilton while the Series 1934 featured Grover Cleveland. Both are prized by collectors and worth more than $1,000 today.

These bills can be very valuable so if you have one, get it appraised. Don’t just deposit it at the bank! 🙂
