Forum Software Migration (2nd Update)

As you may have noticed, the forum software has undergone a bit of a facelift. We've migrated from vBulletin4 to vBulletin5.2.2. As with all software major updates, there will undoubtedly be a few hiccups. As with all software upgrades, vBulletin has made changes in how their software works, so there may be a bit of a learning curve as you re-orient yourself to their changed environment.

We have worked through the initial hiccups that were reported. If you experience additional issues, please pm them to wm and we'll work through them. Thanks for your patience!

  • How much does 100,000 $ from the year 1934 worth today?

    So, a friend of mine, by some accident, have found a bundle of 100,000 US$ from the year of 1934. He kinda curious about how much does it worth at today's currency? Can he still exchange it to current dollar/ rupiahs :> Or maybe find some collectors who want to buy said money from him?

    Thanks in advance!

    US$ 100,000 left hanging about - Gosh.

    I suppose your best bet would be to email the us treasury and ask them.

    Pity there weren't in a bank gaining interest.
    Details - Where did they come from?

      If it's from that year, then what you have is a silver certificate. Not that it means anything except that you can trade it for silver ;-D

      What's the condition?

      what denomination? $10? $1? $20? $100? $3?

      Google "1934 us dollar bills value" like I did and you'll find lots of answers.

        Also, your friend's last name wouldn't happen to be Cooper is it? If it was found in Indonesia, no wonder they never found the money in Washington State :-D

          Every single bill is from 1934. That's a tad strange no?

            I thought that since it's from the year 1934, then it's abit... ancient? And is not used anymore? Then again, I have no clue about this, and only compare with the only currency I know, aka Rupiah.

            It's 99 dollar bills with each value 100,000 US$, so the total value is 9,900,000 US$, though the in the label written on the package is 10,000,000 US$

            We're not sure about this...

            Btw, he found it recently at some airport (in Indonesia) when he wait for a flight to Jakarta.

            Give us some insight? And how to contact this US treasure?

              Sounds all a bit dodgy to me.

              There's no such thing $100,000 bills. Are you sure he didn't find a monopoly game?

                The $100,000 bill was released only as a Gold Certificate in the series of 1934. It featured Woodrow Wilson on the Front and a gold back that said $100,000.

Private ownership of these notes is forbidden, and none are reported to be in private hands.

                      Okay... so what's the conclusion? Is it fake? Illegal? What? Have no clue here... Should he return it? Where?

                        What do your friend's bills look like? Can you check if the serial numbers are all the same (easy way to spot fakes)? Can you scan or take pictures of the ones your friend have? what kind of bundle is it in? what does the paper feel/look like?

                          I might just add the little extra wikipedia information here:

                          'Numerous fake large denominations of US currency have been
                          created by various individuals and organizations which are not the
                          same made by the US goverment.'

                          That means the money can probably look and feel darn real, but is worthless.
