The Louisiana Bayou Sale from World Banknote Auctions features a selection of high-denomination U.S. notes.
World Banknote Auctions is excited to announce its upcoming sale of the
Louisiana Bayou Collection of High Denomination Notes. This collection, which can be
classified as an old-time cash hoard, offers 10 lots of $500 notes and 35 lots of $1000 notes. All
notes were taken out of circulation in the American South during the 1940s and 1950s and are
now offered for the very first time on September 29 at 1 PM PDT on the World Banknote
As can be expected with a group like this there is a wide variety of series, districts and grades.
The entire collection has been graded by PMG and grades range from VG to Choice
Uncirculated. Because of the region that the notes were put away in a fairly large number of
notes are from the Atlanta district, although other districts are represented as well. Notes from
several series are offered, including several from the 1928 series, known for their
stating the notes were redeemable in gold. Other highlights include:
