I found this note today between some old newspapers in the bottom
of a travel case that held an estate lot of coins I bought. I searched around and found some copies / replicas of this note on eBay.
However this note is real not a copy. It is 7 1/4" by 3 1/4" and only printed on one side. It is in real nice condition. Any value to this old note ?
Thank's

We'd have to see pictures of it. How old was the newspaper?

Any 1840 $1,000 Bank of the United States note with the serial number 8894 is a replica that was made in the 1960's for a promotional giveaway in cereal boxes. These replicas are essentially worthless. These replicas are made from yellowish-brown "antiqued" paper that is crisp and brittle to the touch. The genuine $1,000 Bank of the United States notes are printed on thin banknote paper that was originally white or cream colored. One supposes that if a genuine note with the serial number 8894 ever were to show up that it is likely to cause quite a stir among dealers and collectors who have grown weary of answering questions regarding this particular replica.

Hi

Yes, exactly. Matter of fact the newspaper clippings etc.
that were with it are dated in the 60's. Very thick stiff parchment.
With all the toning and sitting around for a few years etc. makes it look authentic. It was interesting though seeing the same note on eBay
but it had a Copy stamp on it (lower left side)Then searching a little more I found one like mine that did sell for a total of $32.00
shipped on eBay. Interesting find anyway. The newspaper clippings all
pertained to coins and silver and gold prices etc. 1961 was when the feds said, no more silver for you citizens. Silver hit $2.10 an ounce
just shortly before that and people where making a mad dash to turn in all their silver certs. At an 80% profit who would blame them. The banks had to honor the certs. and fork over silver in return for the value when the certs. were first issued. At the time of the note issuing silver was $1.29 an oz. Man, wish they would put that back into effect today. Imagine being able to turn in silver certs. today
and get silver at $ 1.29 an ounce or even less, depending on the year
the certs. were issued etc. I was only five years old in 1960 but remember going to the bank with my grandmother and turning in
silver certs. in exchange for a few Peace dollars and change.

Way back when, they weren't required to mark copies.
The newer ones will be marked.

I had some neat looking Confederate currency in the
late 70s when I was a kid. I thought it was real.
In VERY small print, on a rear corner, it was marked
"facsimile". I had no idea what that meant until I
took a note to my local coin shop.

Well thanks all for the info. Interesting looking note none the less.
At least yrs. ago they did a decent job even on manufacture of marketing items. It's always fun and exciting when you find something like this especially if you know nothing about it.
I am going to post some of the newspaper ads / clppings I found in the
old amway tote that all the coins and the note came in. Will find the proper forum for those. To me, the early to mid 60's does not seem that long ago but times sure have changed in the coin and note world
since then.
