Which is the highest denominated US dollar note?

It is $ 100,000 currency note bearing President Woodrow Wilson’s portrait, but has never entered public circulation since very few people would take the risk of keeping such valuable piece of paper in their custody and even fewer people would be inclined to accept it by way of payment. These notes are used only in the US government for internal transactions.

The highest value currency notes in circulation are those for $ 10,000 which were released by the US Federal Reserve between 1985 and 1945. These were gradually withdrawn after the World War II, but 200 such notes still remain in circulation as legal tender.
