If the note is genuine (and that particular series is not known for being the source of many novelty bills, though I am not sure as to the nature of the 'plastic') then it is worth far more than 500 dollars.

The bill you refer to is the Series of 1882 gold certificate.  It has a bright orange back (as do all gold certificates from 1863 to 1922, and some from 1934 as well).  The Series of 1882 was issued from 1882 to 1922 or so.

I have recently inherited some old bills, but I am not sure if one is real. It is a $500 Gold Certificate. Has a plastic or laminated coating on it. Everything looks like it is authentic except that there is no special coloring (orange). Do you know if this is real or maybe just a copy or souvenier?

I to found a 500.00 gold certificate between two to five years ago and still have it and it is also covered in plastic on both sides this certificate is kind of a vanilla color or off white it has Lincoln on it and under chap 290 se. 12 of the Act of July 12,1882. then it says department series Washington Sept. 1st.1882. in the middle it says gold coin. Is this worth anything and I don't have ah scanner but is there ah center out here is Victorville, Ca. that I could go to?
