The Federal Reserve Bank Note series was issued in 1915 with $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, and $50 denominations. Designs were developed for a $100 note, but were only ever produced as a proof of concept. The 1915 Series was never issued in the $100 denomination. When the series was reformatted as small-sized notes, the $1 and $2 notes were suspended and the $100 denomination put into production for the first time ever.


On the obverse side of 1929 $100 Federal Reserve Bank Notes is an image of Founding Father Benjamin Franklin. An inventor, writer, and early American diplomat, Franklin played a vital role in drumming up support for the American cause of independence. His work in getting the assistance of France was particularly important.


The reverse field of the 1929 $100 Federal Reserve Bank Note comes with a depiction of the faade of Independence Hall. The building was the site of some of the most important moments in American history, including the debates and adoption of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.


Federal Reserve Bank Notes were issued by the United States from 1915 to 1934 with the intention of replacing the National Bank Note Series. However, this never came to pass as both forms of paper notes were halted in the 1930s as the US consolidated its circulating paper currency down the Federal Reserve Notes, United States Notes, and Silver Certificates.


1929 $100 Federal Reserve Bank Notes listed here come in Very Fine condition. Notes in this condition have no major detractions, but can come with light to moderate wear and tear, light to mild soiling, and no more than 10 fold lines for those notes in the best condition or numerous fold lines for those notes in average condition in the Very Fine range.

Please keep in mind that the Federal Reserve Bank branch noted on the obverse could vary. Each of the 12 branches issued Federal Reserve Bank Notes, with each one backed by the branch that issued it. These names can vary on the note or notes you receive.
