The largest bill I’ve ever handled was a $500 bill, which features William McKinley. It was back in the 1980s sometime, and my grandfather was paying a contractor for a new roof. Grandpa didn’t like to write checks, so he went to the bank and withdrew something like $5,000 in cash. Even though the $500 bill hadn’t been officially circulated since something like 1969, the bank obviously still had a few on hand, because the stack of cash they gave him included something like three or four of them. I imagine they ended up being deposited almost immediately, probably in the same bank (small town).

I've handled an $800,000 check, when I was a work study student (in the alumni giving office). That could have led to an exciting story, but I dutifully took it to the cashiers office.

Errr, it just occurred to me that this thread could be some sort of basketball reference. Is there a James Madison school that's in that tournament?

This should turn into the official, "what's the most cash you've ever had in your possession?" thread.

csb alert:

one of kenny the kangaroo's jobs at kennywood was in the cash office at the park. one of our jobs was to collect the quarters from a vareity of the machines around the park. carrying around $600 or $800 in quarters in a sack is a lot cooler than it sounds. we also did a little bit with counting the parks daily cash receipts, and as you might imagine, the amounts that collected in a day were well into the six digits. keep in mind that most of the money was in 5's and 20's, so that stack of money got pretty big. its a strange feeling just staring at that much money and knowing that you will never, ever get a piece of.

My spring break bar tab at the hotel (for the week) was 1,000,000 pesos.

Before they changed the value of the peso.

I worked at a Convenience Store/Gas Station for a year and a half when I was 18/19 and I worked alone 3pm-11pm(close).... you'd be suprised how much cash goes through a gas station in 8 hours. Throughout the day it was nothing for me to drop a total of 30k in the safe.

Largest bank note I've ever handled was a 1,000,000 Reichsmark note from Weimar Germany. At the time it was issued, it was worth about 27¢ in U.S. money. Hyper-inflation eventually got to the point that people used the lower denominations (under 1,000 RM) as kindling in wood burning heaters and ovens.

On an interdiction, I once handled upwards of $20 million in Colombian pure. Does that count?

I think my brother owned some (worthless) 10,000,000,000,000 Reichsmark bills. Which was enough for a pound of flour or something.

The most amount of physical currency i ever handled was about 1200 dollars. LOL

I have never really handled physical currency. Everything i do is electronic and when i was a field technician, i would spend 10K on a trip but it would be all on an AMEX.

I was in the same boat as Kenny when I worked at Hershey in the games. However, I never saw that kind of cash. I think the most I had on me at once before someone finally came and dropped was around $1000.

Sadly, I go to all these casinos and the most I've ever walked out of there with was just over $1000, and that was on a boat. However, one time in Vegas I had to carry 2 1/2 buckets of quarters from the slots at the Trop about 300 yards to the cashier's area. (I know, I know...'cool story brah').
