In my Numismatic Diary last week I pictured the above bill received in change at the ANA World's Fair of Money snack stand and asked, "Was somebody going around
spending these at the show?" -Editor

Glad you got one of my stamped bills in change at the ANA. Please spend it so 799 more people will get it in change and see it. I was at Jack In the Box the other day and the
server mentioned he has seen some stamps in green. I have only used red, so someone else is doing this too.
I've passed them out in front of Trump Tower the last two years and will do it again in January when we go to NYC for a week. Even had some young girls want their picture
with this old guy.
Groupies for banknote-stampers? I've seen very few of these in the wild from either political side, but I'm sure many more are coming. Tom shared these photos -
he's got plenty more where my note came from. -Editor
It's great to get a first-hand report on how these are getting into circulation. But please - let's keep the discussion on numismatics. As the U.S. election season gets
in full swing I'm sure we'll see many more of these from members of both major political parties. We welcome images and stories of stamped notes from the other side, and have already published images of "Donald Trump Lives Here",
"Responsible Gun Owner" and "No Obama" stamped notes - see the links below.-Editor
