WHERE'S GEORGE? is the fun, fascinating, and educational website where peopel can keep track of those globetrotting gents named George, Andrew, Abe and Ulysses and the rest of their Currency Commrades.
You have just bought a burger and fries at some fast food joint, bought a lotto ticket, or paid some street corner floozy for a midni, um, forget that last, you get my drift, I'm sure.
Have you ever wondered where those bills have been, or where they will go next?
All you need to do is enter the denomination, series, and serial number of any US dollar bill, and your current USA ZIP or Canadian Post Code in the box on the main page.
If you want to follow them on their travels, though, you have to register on the website.
You can enter a brief note describing the bill, its condition, and any markings on it of interest.
If you so choose you can print, or rubberstamp the website URL on the bill, in a way that does not deface the bill, or make it "unfit for re-issue", so the finder will know what to do, if they are so inclined, and then spend the bill!
For 10 years, now, people all across America, and Canada (There is a seperate site for Canadian bills), have been following the money. ;-D
The website has many fascinating forums, interesting links to Numismatic related websites, and a store that sells shirts, mugs, and bumper stickers.
There are various Top 10 lists that track bills in various categories such as:
1. Top 10 Most Entered Dollar Bills: some bills have been entered 12-15 times (All $1 bills), and there are lists for other denominations.
2. Top 10 Users: One person has entered over 907,000 bills, and had 143,000 of them reported again!
3. Top 10 States: Ca. comes in at #1 with over 11,800,000 unique bills entered, and more than 1,300,000 of those reported again!
4. Top 50 Zip Codes, and state/county.
There are also lists by Series, denomination, and Federal Reserve Bank.
