Thinking about maybe picking this guy up but they are asking $1200 for it.

Is the blue stain a deal breaker?

Thanks for the help all!

    I recall years ago a major reputable dealer was buying generic 500s and 1000s at 5-10% over face, and retail wasn't too much more. :o

    I agree that if you're going to the the plunge you like are better off paying more for a clean note.

    The seller of that 500 with the bank stamp will be happy when he sells it. ;)

    That is sooo cool. I vaguely remember a $1000 bill as a kid but didn't realize there were $500 bills. Another one for the list.

    Wait for a better example. I always recall what a major paper money dealer told me back in the 1990s when asked about the rarity of the high denomination notes. He simply said something like "How many do you want and how much are you will to pay. They're available."
