Having the bill would be cool but there would be very few places you could spend it.  No one would be able to make change.

William Hanna (Tom and Jerry) reminded me of the year I lived in Brazil.  My little host brother was only 6 years old at the time, and we watched Tom and Jerry a LOT together.  Since there was very little speaking, we both knew what was going on!  (I didn't speak much Portuguese at the beginning and of course he didn't speak English).

In Brazil, well, Portuguese language, if a word has two R's in a row, that's pronounced as an H sound.  The word "and" is "e" in Portuguese.  So actually, we watched "Tome e Jehee" - not "Tom and Jerry".  :o)  fond memories for sure.

I knew they used to make $500's and $1,000's, but I didn't know about the $5,000's and $10,000's till now!!  Yeah, it'd be nice to have a few of them!  :D

Much of my childhood was spent in front of the television, watching Tom and Jerry!

I bet you could offer the $10,000 for sale out on the street for $500 and get NO TAKERS.

I also bet the bank would forward it on to the feds for verification before they allowed you to spend it. 

As a side point, I don't even like to take fifties or hundreds, even from the bank or ATM for fear they might be fake. A twenty would be painful enough.

According to a quick search a pristine condition $10,000 note can go for over $140,000. Used condition can still be worth as much as $30,000.

So maybe not on the streets, but through a dealer...

WOW!!!

I wonder what type of person would or could collect those things?

Definitely out of our price range! We're to poor to test this theory of mine.

When I said out on the street, I meant people would think it was fake. Thinking about it, you could offer a real $100 for $5 and most would think it was a scam of some type.
