$1,000 Bank of United States Note, Serial Number 8894.

You’re looking at the replica of $1,000 banknotes that are so well known that they’re usually referred to by their serial number "8894."

This is one of the most widely reproduced replicas of U.S. notes. These items were most probably issued by the phonograph record company Longines Symphonette Society in Larchmont, N.Y., in 1967.

The LSS replica is of a $1,000 Bank of the United States note originally issued in the mid-1800s. The design on the face or front of the note features an impressive looking building in the center with three portraits at either end of the note.

The record firm apparently had these replicas produced as part of a promotion. The replicas were included in sales brochures that went far and wide. The replica notes were printed on imitation parchment and were treated to give them a "yellowed with age" appearance. The key is they all have the same serial number, 8894.

These replicas don’t have any monetary value but they make interesting conversation starters.

    That “impressive looking building” looks like the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. What year did these come out?

  2. richard warwick Says:
