Benny Binion was a Las Vegas, Nevada casino owner. He created a tourist attraction by mounting one hundred $10,000 notes at the entrance to his "Golden Horseshoe" casino.
The notes were sold by Binion's heirs and entered the collectables market. Over the years I've handled a handful of $10,000 FRNs, mostly from the Binion group.


The image on the $10,000 note is that of Salmon Portland Chase. Chase served as Governor of Ohio, US Senator
from Ohio and Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court. His image is on our money because he also was Secretary of
the Treasury in Lincoln's cabinet. The Chase School of Law and The Chase National Bank were named in his honor.


The Binion notes were mounted in a 20-row by 5-column display. The note below was in row 17, column 2. A copy of the serial numbers arrangement accompanies this note.
