Ugh, I made it to tonight's final round question. I knew Susan B. Anthony was the "obvious" answer, so I went with Martha Washington. Pocahontas would have netted me $59.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I made it there, too. I was sure that Martha Washington was the first woman pictured on US currency, but some Googling after the fact disabused me of that particular trivia chestnut.

Got to the last question too... said the wrong woman on currency too (Susan B Anthony). next time!

In fact, Wikipedia's page on the one-dollar bill still says she was the first woman on American currency (and she certainly is the first to have her face be the primary portrait). I got knocked out slightly before that, but I would have locked in Martha in a heartbeat.
