Issued during the first year of modern-size paper currency use, this "Series of 1928" banknote features a portrait of Grover Cleveland at center and was redeemable in gold when in use as circulating currency, as indicated by a printed disclaimer near top left on the obverse. The U.S. Treasury's obligation for gold redemption was ended in 1933 when FDR outlawed the private ownership of gold, adding great historic value to the relative scarcity associated with this large denomination note.
