    Welcome to the forum @HJM, have you looked at the auction archives at Heritage ?
    The minimum is at least $50K to join this exclusive club.

    Maybe check stacks and bowers on occasion as well.

    I photographed these two at the ANA , I believe they were at Heritage Auctions. Could have even been Stacks or GC. My apologies for not remembering.

    Actually I was correct, it was Heritage Auction and they were displayed with Fred Weinberg’s items coming up for auction.

    just wondering if these notes are demonetized?
    can they be exchanged?

    With the surviving populations in the low hundreds, several to a dozen or two examples typically come up for sale each year.

    A few years back the "Million Dollar" display from Binion's Casino, a horseshoe-shaped arrangement of one hundred $10,000 notes, was disassembled and sold. That supplied many of the $10,000 examples seen today. Some (or all?) of the notes in this display were mounted by pinning the corners, so many have pinholes or repaired pinholes at the corners. The $5000s seem to be the scarcer of the two denominations today.

    They can definitely be spent as real money…even though that would be foolish.

    I am not sure the cashier would have the change for the 5k bill o:)

    I doubt any would accept it as they would think it's fake,

    Oh, your teller at your local bank would be happy to take them - then they would call a collector like me and flip them for a nice profit. They're supposed to turn them into the Fed but that rarely happens.

    The bank would probably be required to take them, but I bet the supervisors wouldn't let the teller walk off with something like that. In fact, I bet the teller would get fired if they tried.

    Well, it's never happened with a $5000 or $10000 note but, on more than one occasion, I've had my local branch manager call me up to let me know that someone had deposited some $500 and $1000 notes. The teller has taken them to the manager who has then called me and they both split the profit I offered them.

    Might even make me consider becoming a car salesman.
