Woman Deposits $1000 Bills

By Margaret Lyons in News on Jul 10, 2008 5:20PM


A Munster, Indiana woman attempted to deposit $2,000 in cash yesterday, but the bank called her and asked her to take her money back because she had deposited two $1,000 bills. The rare but legitimate bills are from 1934 and are each worth around $4,500.

Grover Cleveland is on one version $1,000 bill, and Alexander Hamilton is on the other. James Madison is on the $5,000, Salmon P. Chase, subject of my very own seventh grade report (holla, impeachment of Andrew Johnson), is on the $10,000, and Woodrow Wilson is on the $100,000 Gold Certificate. [AP]
