    Art is a very fluid market and artwork at times can be considered as close to priceless as any other high end merchandise that one can acquire – have you ever studied or taken an art class? The art world is mind boggling, fascinating and as cut-throat as any other business. It is also interesting, beautiful and creative. You learn about what the artist was thinking, feeling, expressing and projected to world. And needless to say, the old saying goes, ‘artists are never truly famous until they are dead.’ Check out the masters.

    Go to the nearest art museum in your town, public library or Barnes and Noble and hangout in the art section – there is world waiting for you. You will love it.

    My guess would be Russia as well. Pretty much back then it was a race between them and the US to see who was going to land on the moon 1st.

    That was a pretty good guess!

    What is the largest denomination of US currency ever produced?

    Answer: The largest denomination of currency ever printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) was the $100,000 Series 1934 Gold Certificate featuring the portrait of President Wilson. These notes were printed from December 18, 1934 through January 9, 1935 and were issued by the Treasurer of the United States to Federal Reserve Banks only against an equal amount of gold bullion held by the Treasury Department. The notes were used only for official transactions between Federal Reserve Banks and were not circulated among the general public.
