United States Notes $10,000 question.

According to internet all United States Note $10,000 has been redeemed.

I have been searching reports from the Treasury according to $40,000 000 in such notes were issued and~~~~ 1890 all but one had been redeemed.
At that time five $5000 was also out and about, but the last redeemed in 1908.
But 1923 the last $10,000 still was unredeemed. Does anyone have further information?

    Welcome to the forum spett.

    After reading this I referenced both the Whitman Encyclopedia of U.S.Paper Money and the 19th edition of Paper Money of United States by IRA & Arthur Friedberg. Both had the same comments stating that all notes have been redeemed. I made a photo of the cataloged image of the note for members that aren’t familiar with how it looked.

    I’m sorry, but I’m still not getting who or what has been given authority.

    I am having an awful day. But have checked report of the Comptroller of Currency 1935. Sadly the tracking of United States Notes in that report had ceased by 1935.

    We're talking about large size $10,000 notes.
    Small size $5000 and $10,000 were issued with 1928 and 1934 series dates and were delivered into the 1940s. Some of these still survive-a few hundred.
