Years ago I saw a display at one of the Las Vegas casinos of $1 million and it was all in $10,000 bills. Now that was a pretty awesome sight. And that was when $1 million was really worth something!
I have about 50 of them. I thought that they might increase in value.
Is it gay as an Easter Bonnet, and queer as a $3.00 bill? Or is it the other way around?
The average cashier too dim bulb to do his job apparently is on a par intellectually with the average dogshooter.
They have no clue about anything.
Ain't that the truth! I am sure that I knew more as a teenager and young adult than most of the counterparts I run across today.
What you need to do is to get a bunch (maybe 50) of new $2 bills with consecutive serial numbers. Cut a piece of thin cardboard to the size of a bill, then stack the bills on the cardboard and use first-aid gauze and rubber cement at one end to assemble a “money pad”. Some careful trimming will make it look good.
I used to do this with $5 bills once in a while. Never got arrested, but there were some amusing reactions.
They used to have the display.
When they went under they sold it off.
Every once in a while you'll see a 10,000 bill auctioned off.
In a lot of instances, it's one of the Binion's bills.
And you'd be stunned at how much a 10,000 bill goes for.
Many multiples of 10K. Close to 30-40K per bill, because they are very rare.
I own a thousand dollar bill, and a 500, but I paid a pretty penny for both.
Locked away in a safety deposit box at the bank.
When I win the lottery, I'll buy a 10K bill, just to have it.
What a beautiful bill!
“Locked away in a safety deposit box at the bank.”
I think it probably was at Binion’s Horseshoe.
I do not use bank safety deposit boxes. I do not think they are safe. It takes little effort for the Gov’t to access and take what they want.
A few years ago I was questioned by a checkout clerk in New Jersey when I tendered some Susan B. Anthony coins to make a small purchase. To me, the cluelessness is startling and just a little bit off-putting. The kid was about 17. I wonder if he’s heard of the Pacific Ocean by now.
My favorite is the check out clerks. If the bill is $8.63 I’ll give $10.13 to the clerk, the older ones don’t even blink.
The younger ones look at me like I’ve lost my head and sometimes even start to say something. The startled look on their faces when they enter the amount and the cash register gives them the amount of change is amusing and pathetic at the same time.
