WHERE'S GEORGE 

   Some E-Sylum readers may recall that "Where's George" was a 
   featured web site back in the March 8, 1999 issue (Volume 2, 
   Number 10): 
. 
      One of the most unusual numismatically-related 
      sites on the internet is "Where's George - The 
      Great American Dollar Bill Locator"  at 
      http://www.wheresgeorge.com/  Readers can enter 
      the serial numbers of dollar bills passing through 
      their hands and track their later progress around 
      the country with the help of like-minded bill 
      trackers.   Strange, but true... 

   Well, your Editor finally stumbled onto his first George- 
   tracked bill.  The URL for the web site was written by 
   hand onto the left front margin of a very worn $5 bill. 
   Logging on to the site, I dutifully entered the requested 
   information.  Bill B22185623C was last reported in 
   Dillsburg, PA on July 30th, 2000, and 146 Days, 15 Hrs, 
   4 Mins later it showed up near Pittsburgh, a distance 
   of 158 miles.   It was spent this afternoon at a McDonald's 
   buying lunch for my kids.  Wonder where it will end up 
   next?
