They should have printed out a few 1 million dollar bills from their computer, and given it them (computer paper and all).

Have provisions on the contract that says "1 million dollar bill is not legal US tender" :p

The largest U.S. bank note ever printed was for $10,000.


Wow, I didn't even know we went up that high.

Well, if you read up about that $100,000 bill, you'll learn that it was never released in the public and was only used as a Bank Transfer Note meaning only the Federal Reserve Banks used these large bills. Now, the $10,000 bill is the largest bill that is(was) available to the public. "In 1945, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing stopped printing notes with denominations greater than $100."

If I remember right from my tour of the Federal Reserve, they stopped printing the higher denominations as a prevention to organized crime. It's a lot more suspicious to carry around and deal hundreds of thousands of dollars in a briefcase full of "small" bills than it is to carry a small wad of $10,000 bills.

Well, I can see why the Federal Reserve would not want extremely large bills in circulation due to counterfeiting.

but the statement said the 10,000 was the largest printed, when the 100,000 was printed and was legal tender

No someone took care of the $100,000 in this thread. The 100,000 was never released to the public and if you look at the $100,000 bill it says gold certificate on it.

Anyway wow the Japan and walmart thing are just great. The walmart one is great. Does she not understand how large that amount of money was.

Some local store called the FBI when someone used a $2 bill, took days before they were released from prison.

Why the f*ck Woodrow Wilson is on that $100,000 bill is well beyond me. The man was pretty much responsible for World War II as he asspacked Germany so severly with his 14 points. Plus the guy was a non-practicing member of the KKK. Why wasn't he shot? Meh, I blame Taft for not stepping down and out of Teddy Roosevelt's campaign for a second none-consecutive term, he was obviously the better man for the job. Alas, instead we got Woodrow Wilson, WWI, Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge and the Depression. So... why is he on the $100,000 bill again?

What the hell is a non-practicing member of the KKK? You only hate minorities on Christmas and Easter?
