Small size $500 Federal Reserve Notes were printed for three different Series. 1928, 1934 and 1934-A. There are a total of 35 different Series/District combinations available. That is 12 different districts from all three Series with the exception of Series 1934-A Boston $500s where none were printed.
Although they are still technically legal tender in the United States, high-denomination bills were last printed on December 27, 1945, and officially discontinued on July 14, 1969, by the Federal Reserve System, supposedly due to "lack of use".
