THE WHERE'S GEORGE VIKING SHIP

O. T. Thompson of Wilmington, NC submitted this note on Where's George, the web site for tracking the whereabouts of U.S. dollar bills. -Editor

Where's George Viking Ship

I read with interest your latest article on the 'Where's George' phenomenon and had to reply.

Around 1999 I began using the Where's George website to promote the fact that the Vikings discovered America around 1000AD. I stamped my bills with a Viking ship as well as the Where's George information. Over the years, these Viking ship/ Where's George bills have been mentioned twice in Numismatic News. The first time was in the form of a letter to the editor on December 19, 2000 and the second was a photo of a $2 on April 10, 2007.

My favorite 'hit' for one of my Georgies was a few years ago when, in the remarks section of the found bill, someone wrote, "Received in change from a smoke shop in downtown Baghdad"!

There are a million ways to have fun with the hobby and Where's George is only one of them.
