    The Bureau of Engraving never printed a 3-dollar bill.

    Any bill like that were printed by private contractors, who did it without approval.

    Before there was centralized currency, some states did in fact have 3 dollar bills.

    Some novelty 3 dollar bills were published. Notably the one put out by Mad Magazine in the 1960s, which they had to stop (the bills actually worked in casino change machines).
