When I was a teller, back in the stone coin era, I had a couple of standing offers for $500s. Never collected, but a woman I worked with did - someone brought in a stack of Grandpa's sock money with two Grovers in it.

The last print run of the $500 bill was in 1945.

Quote:
"The Treasury announced on July 14, 1969, that it would quit issuing the $500, $1,000, $5,000, and $10,000 notes immediately, since the bills were so sparsely circulated. It's not like the Bureau of Engraving and Printing had to stop the presses, either; the bills hadn't seen an actual print run since 1945."

As a coin collector, I like going to banks and asking for rolls of half dollars. Occasionally you will still find some silver ones
