cliff: I didn't even know there were $1000 bills issued.


According to the Treasury's website FAQ, production of $1000 bills stopped during WWII and the Federal Reserve stopped distributing them in 1969. They are still legal tender and in circulation, but when they are received by Federal Reserve Banks, they are removed from circulation and destroyed.
