What is the value of a 1923 100 million dollar silver certificate?

A couple of bucks in the novelty shop that sold it - it's a joke item.
The highest-value US bill ever put into circulation was $10,000, and the highest value US bill ever printed was a special $100,000 gold certificate used only for government transactions.
In fact, in 1923 a hundred million dollars would have been a substantial fraction of the country's budget so printing bills with that value would have been absurd on the face of it.
