Jimmy Madison’s image also made it onto a $2 Stamp issued in 1894 and a series 1898 $1,000 US Revenue Stamp.

Year ago, I mean many years ago, a friend purchased a 5k and 10k note.  He paid 9k and 19k respectively.  I traded a gun for a $500 note and a few bucks (he was an avid gun collector) and I planned to buy a $1,000 star note for $1200.  I screwed up that purchase.  He sold all the notes.  I think I still have black and white photo copies of those notes somewhere.  How nice would it to have those with the current value.

Madison should be on more. He wrote the US Constitution and pretty much the Bill of Rights... and served as 4th President of the United States. I wonder why he didn't sign the Declaration? Would have to delve into that...

Madison was 15 years old when the declaration was signed.
The youngest delegates to sign were 26.

Wai-wuhhh? That cannot be right. Let me check that... he was 25 when it was signed... I was gonna say that'd have meant he wrote the Constitution when he was 26 years old... so he was young but not that young...

My bad - off by ten years.  So he would have been the youngest signer by just a year.  Still, I think it kinda answers the question.  However, I have always liked this quote from Interview with the Vampire, which captures that era:

"1791 was the year it happened. I was 24, younger than you are now. But times were different then, I was a man at that age: the master of a large plantation just south of New Orleans."

Hell in those days your life was often more than half over by 24...
