- Most $1000 bills were printed in 1934. This one looks to be in fine condition. I think the rating of 65 is about right because the borders are just slightly off center. Still a great collectible.
- Fact 1: The $1000 bill was last printed in 1945, and discontinued by the US Treasury in 1969.
- Fact 2: US paper currency is typically graded on a 1-70 scale, with 70 being a mint, never circulated, perfectly created bill.
- Fact 3: In 2006, an 1890 "Grand Watermelon" $1000 bill sold for $2.2 million, making it the most expensive paper currency ever sold.
- Fact 4: 1918 series $1000 bills feature Alexander Hamilton on the obverse, one of the few paper bills in the United States to feature a non-President.
- Fact 5: Legislation in 1934 mandated that citizens exchange large amounts of gold for paper currency, resulting, that year, in a larger than average printing of high-denomination currency.
