I recently aquired a Bird series 1000.00 note from my bank for it's face value :). I would not have bought if for a premium though ::). An update on my Bird 1000.00.......I just traded it in, again at my Scotia branch for face value, to a 1954 series 1000.00 Lawson/Bouey......I prefer the older series 8).

Recently i was trying to save about $1500 to try to buy a 1954 $1,000 bill. After I saved up to around $450 I looked on Ebay and seen a 1954 $20 Devils Face in UNC condition. For only $200. (I  spent the other $250 on something else i forget ???) but back to the $1000 if I had the money and the patiance to find one I could afford and like the condition it was in I would probably collect them.

I always wanted one (just one) for te heck of it. At first they were really hard to find. In the past year however, I came accross two 1988's (diff signatures) and five 1954's (Lw-Bo). Spent both 1988's, sold the 1954's for $1100 a piece. Too much money being tied up.

Also, a 56 year old bill yeilding only 25% premium for an AU is a pretty bad investment if you ask me. Same for the Bird... 22 years and less than 10% premium.

When you factor in inflation $1,000 in 1954 is worth $729 today. If you were lucky enough to get a 25% premium ($250) you would still not break even. Unfortunately this does not only apply to $1,000 bills

I don't have any 1000 bills. I would much rather put a thousand on a *Z/Z or say an AUJ T/C !

I just realised that i mis-transposed the info. It should actually be;

$1,000 in 1954 is equal to $8,285.71 in 2010 which means total inflation from '54 to '10 is 728.57%

If you happened to store away a $1,000 modified note in G.Unc you would have lost 50% of your face value provided you got full book at a minimum. If you would had been lucky enough to save a G.Unc devils face and got full book then you would have done a little better but investment wise not very good.

Mind boggling.

But then what notes have really yeild rates better rates than what the banks would give us (shouldn't be very hard)... 1935's med-high grades, key notes (train, $4, etc), what else ??

That's the million dollar question.  If we knew today what would be valuable tomorrow, we'd all be rich. 

My 2002 Charlton lists $10,000 for an UNC 1937 Osborne $50.  My 20-year-earlier 1982 Charlton lists the same note at $65.  If only we had known back then...

I have a 1954-$1000 with the Theissen /Crow on it. I got it in 2002. Had it certified by BCS as an Unc60. So far I think I could make about $600 over what I paid for it To me, it was'nt worth the investment.

Yep - just got a Gem 1954 note from my local CIBC.  They had just removed from an old safe deposit box. 

She charged me $1000 for it.
