I don't own one, but just look it up on Wiki. They are no longer illegal to own. However I do not know about the red notes, but people collect gold certificates and they are not illegal to have in your possession.
Since you obviously missed it: ALL 1934 series gold certificates (the orange-colored notes) in large denominations ($500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000 and $100,000) are illegal to own. They never have been, nor or they now legal to own. The only bills that are legal to own are treasury notes which are not orange. If you have evidence to the contrary (sales, collectors, auctions, literature) please post them. You will not find them in currency guides with any trade value indicated as they are not available.
The United States Treasury website makes this point very clear.
Well someone has them. There's pics of them all over the internet. Are you saying all those people have printing presses? Or is it maybe something else?
