The E-Sylum: Volume 3, Number 53, December 24, 2000, Article 7


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:

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?
