While the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing endeavors to create perfect banknotes, people can't seem to leave well enough alone - they're always decorating them
with political slogans, much like the counterstamped Irish coinage seen in another article in this issue. Jud Petrie has been collecting these for some time, and shared several
images with us. Thanks! See below for a link to a photo album on our Flickr archive. Here are a some samples. -Editor
"I am now a retired airline ticket agent and got all of these when I was still working, mostly obtained from the skycaps who received them as tips, and knew I collected
coins and 'weird' stuff. I don't know where I got the Ron Paul bill, but it was after I retired. Although I never entered any 'Where's George' bills of my
own I have entered many that I received, and would exchange them with my passengers explaining how the system worked, trying to 'put some miles' on them, selecting
passengers who were going cross country or international. "
