The $1,000 note was officially discontinued in 1934 and was slowly withdrawn from circulation beginning in 1969. As of May 30, 2009, just 165,372 $1,000 bills were known to exist. The Huffington Post reports that in 2013, a $1,000 bill was auctioned off in Illinois for $2.5 million. The price paid for the bill set a world record for a U.S. banknote sold at auction.

    How can I tell if a 1934 $100 bill is real?

    A:

    The most reliable method of determining if a 1934 dollar bill is real is to look for tiny red and blue threads. Bills from 1934 lack many of the sophisticated anti-counterfeit measures present in newer bills, making the threads important for counterfeit detection. They are difficult to see without a magnifying glass, and are clearly fibers embedded in the paper, not markings drawn on the surface.
