Just got here

Just got here (1/6)



  1. This is a strange question to have but my dad wanted me to do some research on this $100,000 dollar note and so I thought I'd post it here to see if anyone knew the answer. I actually have 2 questions for this community. The first question is about the $100,000 dollar note. Is it illegal to have one in possession? The reason why I asked is because last year I inherited a note which is suppose to be a $100,000 dollar note from my uncle who passed away in the Philippines 2-years ago. I'm afraid to even show it to people or take a picture of it because my dad said he read some where that it's illegal to even have in your possession. The way my uncle got is he was a very well known Catholic Priest in the southern Islands of the Philippines. He was good friends with the government officials and also made good friends with the 'Monkey' tribe who were the radicals that opposed the Philippine government and lived in the mountains in the southern Philippines. My uncle was kind of like the Ambassador or diplomat between the Philippine government officials and the Monkey people that lived in the mountains. As a gift of from the Monkey People... they gave my uncle this $100,000 dollar note along with a Gold Bullion with some strange spanish symbols on it that I can't find anywhere else. (That leads to my 2nd question later on.) They told my uncle they found these items in a plane that crashed in the mountains in the Southern Philippines during World War II. When they found the crashed planes... inside the planes were what they originally thought were big black refrigerators that were very heavy to move. When they finally managed to open up what they originally thought were refrigerators actually turned out to be big giant 'Safes'. Inside this safe was supposedly these various different large denomination bills ($100,000 dollar notes) along with Gold Bullion bars. So when my uncle passed away 2-years ago... I inherited the $100,000 dollar note along with the Gold Bullion bar with the strange spanish symbols on it. The Gold Bullion bar is really heavy... I'd say maybe 10 pounds I would guess. Maybe more. Not exactly sure. I've been a little hesitant to ask people about this because I don't want to get in trouble in case the $100,000 dollar note is indeed real and also illegal to have in possession. I have no way to verify if it is or not... I just know the story of how my uncle got it from the Monkey people that lived in the mountains and how I inherited both the note and the gold bullion bar. We tried to have the Gold Bullion bar checked out by a collector and even he didn't know what the spanish looking symbols where or where this Gold Bullion bar actually originated from. It looks very old. I know they did several tests with the bar trying to weigh it, then hitting it with some strange device to see the sound it makes which was almost a hollow sounding sound. The collector said the only way to really tell if it's real gold is to have it melted and tested... but we didn't want to do that. He just knew the symbols on the bar intrigued him because they looked like something he's never seen before. I guess I just want to know... is there anything I can do with these 2 items? I am at least curious to know if they are worth anything... which I think if they are real... could really be worth a lot. But I'm also a little afraid because I don't even know if they're even legal to have. I didn't bring them back to the U.S. from the Philippines. Both items are kept in a safe place with my cousins who live in the southern Island of the Philippines in Mindanao. But I just thought I'd throw this question out there just in case and see if anyone out here knows more about the $100,000 dollar note or the strange gold bullion bar with spanish symbols on it. Any feedback anyone can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks! -- Curious Newbie
