Publication: 1940

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow pose on this novelty $100,000 bill, replacing the image of President Woodrow Wilson that adorned the few $100,000 bank notes that were actually printed by the Federal Reserve System. The couple's photographs are drawn from candid shots discovered by police in April 1933. In fact, high denomination bills over $100 have not been printed since 1946 and have been withdrawn from circulation by the Federal Reserve since 1969.
