A rare $10,000 bill from the Great Depression has sold at auction for $480-thousand dollars.
Heritage Auctions of Dallas says the large-denomination U.S. note was printed in Boston in 1934 and features the face of Abraham Lincoln's Secretary of Treasury Salmon P. Chase.
The auction house says the bill is of exceptional quality and noted that this month's winning bid broke the record for a ten-thousand-dollar bill from 1934.
The $10,000 bill was the highest denomination note to ever circulate publicly.
The $100,000 bill, featuring the face of Woodrow Wilson, was once used by Federal Reserve banks, but not intended for general use.
