Finding $500 or $1000 bills in circulation (local banks)
About 15 years ago, I picked up 2 $1000 bills and 1 $500 bill at my local Wells Fargo branch. The branch manager was going to turn them in but I convinced the assistant manger to let me buy them instead. They weren't in great shape as they had small staple holes but for face value, I can't complain.
Anyone else have similar stories from the past as I'm sure it is impossible to find them nowadays. Thanks.
