    What if someone dug a box of $100,000 bill as a treasure? It is said that many of the circulating samples were destroyed, but not all of them right?

    • All of the surviving notes are in the hands of the U.S. government, so if someone dug up a box of these "notes" they would be counterfeits.

    • Maybe many of these notes were stolen from the US government from way back and brought them here in the country. Also, during those time I don't think any private person in the Philippines has already acquired money making machine that can counterfeit these notes so perfectly. I've seen one.

    • There is always the possibility that someone stole a few genuine examples from the U.S. government. However, the probability of that happening is unlikely. The problem I see is that numerous people from the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia have claimed to have come across real $100,000 bills, but every time the notes turn out to be counterfeits. Additionally, many of the counterfeits out there were probably made long after the real notes were printed, which would make producing convincing forgeries possible. If you feel you have a real example, would you mind showing me a picture of it? I should be able to verify whether it is genuine or not.

    • Okey, I will try to ask the owner if it's okey for him to take a picture of the note.. To be honest, the owner is a member of a group of treasure hunters and he showed me one. He said that a box of it was stolen from them after they tried to sell it in the black market. Their buyer brought a group of armed men after seing the note and so they left the box of the notes with thousands of pieces on it.

Is this real? or those writings that appear only when you use UV Light can also be copied or counterfeited? please enlighten me here.. thanks..

      According to page 7 of this document, "Neither JP Morgan nor the bank by that name had anything to do with [the $100,000 bills]. Boxes marked 'JP Morgan' are likewise fake." Therefore, a note bearing the name of J. P. Morgan would undoubtedly be a counterfeit.

      Update: The same document I posted in my previous comment states on page 1 that "none [of the notes] were ever released to the public or lost or stolen."

      ...Why would a bank note from the 30s have an anti-counterfitting device (UV markings), when that technology didn't even exist at the time?
