…The $10,000 bill is real legal tender?

Ten Thousand Bill

The $10,000 banknote is the largest denomination legal for tender in the United States today by any regular old Joe Schmoe. Printed until 1945 by the Federal Reserve and issued until 1969, the $10,000 note was recalled in 1969 to combat organized crime. The note features Salmon P. Chase, US Treasury Secretary under President Abraham Lincoln, and later Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. He is one of only three people to grace the front of a bank note having never been president. Though most of these are in private collector’s hands, it would make one hell of a way to buy (or at least put a down payment on) that next Ferrari.
