Recently found a 1934 $500 New York c series specimen bill and a $5000 1934 New York c series specimen bill that my grandma left me. Do these potentially have any value aside from my sentimental connection? If so where should I take them to get appraised?

Fewer that 350 $5000 dollar bills are believed to exist today. If genuine, yours should be worth well above face value.

DO not fold,bend,clean or do anything to them prior to them being looked at by a professional... Avoid handling them directly as much as possible as well.... Good pictures posted here will get definitionally help you get pointed in the right direction...

Can you at least explain to us how they are marked "Specimen"?

Bills have the word 'specimen' punched out meaning made up of little holes that spell out the word. Will post pictures when I get back home.

Welcome to CCF.
This is the only small-size 1934C $500 hole-punched specimen I could find. It sold for almost $10K back in 2005.

Why is the word "SPECIMEN" not backwards on the reverse?
