It appears that Decimal does not support PEP-515 style formatting with underscores as thousands separators. 

>>> from decimal import Decimal
>>> f"{Decimal('5000'):,}"
>>> f"{Decimal('5000'):_}"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: invalid format string


This does work for all the other types mentioned in PEP515

>>> f"{5000:_}"
>>> f"{5000.0:_}"
>>> f"{complex(5000, 1):_}"

I have tried this on python 3.8, 3.9 and 3.10 on a Mac.
