    What would you take back to exchange for money in 1800?

    If you had one time access to a time machine, wanted to go back to 1800 to live, and could wear period dress and take a briefcase with you, what would you take worth 1000 USD that wouldn't change history to exchange for money?

    Antiques and collectibles which are auctionable. 1000 USD then allows so many items of value to pick from.

    If I can have the chance to access the machine, to go back to 1800. I will just try to bring back the good qualities of the people, during that time. Because, Now a days, the world has been polluted with evil minds. But, there is lot more goodness in the hearts of the people, during that time.

    I would take gold and silver coins back with me and they could be used for money. Up until 1859 coins from other countries could be used legally in commerce in the United States.

    Precious metals, namely gold and silver coins/ingots/bars.  Historically, they have generally held their value; been valued in a global economy; and have been useful for monetary and other purposes (science, medicine, industry, jewelry, etc.)
