Grover Cleveland: York Stater on Big Money
And now for a visual interlude: York Stater Grover Cleveland gracing the 1928 $1000 dollar bill. Cleveland was born in, and died in, New Jersey, but was raised a York Stater in Fayetteville NY (my hometown) and went on to become mayor of Buffalo, Governor of New York State, this nation's only non-consecutive two-term president, and (to the best of my knowledge) the only York Stater to appear on money. Take that Millard Filmore and Martin Van Buren.
The Treasury website has other large bills and further information.

Update: I stand corrected: Phil rightly notes that both FDR and Susan B. Anthony appear on coinage. Upstate has more monetary representation that I thought!
