One of the interesting things about having site tracking is that you get to see where people come from. I was looking at the sites that referred people here and I found this. I don’t know this Linnsey, either, but I figured that if they’re going to link here, I might as well link there.

Mystery solved?

I’ve been finding more strange bills. I keep meaning to post them. I suppose I’d better get to it.

Someone sent warm wishes to their father. When I first saw it, I thought perhaps a son was trying to send a message hoping that their father would get the bill. I’m assuming that the bill was given as a gift and the bill was eventually spent. However, I’m thinking that sentimental value would compel someone to hold on to the bill. I think I’d put it in a safe place. Now that I think about it, it is kind of an odd bill. I wouldn’t be surprised to get a comment from someone wanting it back.

This bill is even stranger. The back has "Million dollar bill" on it and the front has all sorts of stuff. I’m really beginning to think that way too many people have way too much time on their hands.

I’m even moving into Asian languages. I found this on a bill, which I’m hoping isn’t offensive. I don’t know what it means. If anyone knows, please post a comment explaining it.

I did find a possible answer to the Gonza mystery. I was looking through YouTube the other day and found this. Again, I don’t even know what language it is, but there is a song or band or person called Gonza and is associated with a band or song or something called Dollar Bill. There’s even a Dollar Bill Web site.

So, it looks like I have one mystery solved, but need two translations now. It looks promising. I may actually be getting somewhere.

I got this bill today with a crossed out Federal Reserve seal. I don’t know if someone has something against the Federal Reserve Board or if they were just bored. Why the seal? Of all the things they could cross out, why the seal? Why not Lincoln or one of the serial numbers?

It’s kind of interesting for a political statement, but what are they trying to say? That they don’t believe in cash? Or maybe they don’t like the FRB. Or they might just be bored. The seal of the Department of the Treasury might have made more sense, I guess. It’s impossible to tell anymore.

This one, I’ve had for a while. I don’t remember where I got it or why I held on to it for so long. Who or what is Copia? I found on Google. That site and a few others with Copia in the name have do with Wine. Another site,, says that copia is a method of learning, although I don’t exactly know what it all means.

Speaking of bills, someone came in to Wolf the other day asking for change of a hundred. We don’t usually do this because it drains us of change greatly. However, I happened to have $100 in small bills on me, so I offered to break the bill. When he realized how many bills I had given him, he asked for the hundred back. Oh, well…

This, I found at work. It came from a single-use Fuji camera. Someone had brought it in to be developed. Normally, the canisters get thrown away. However, I thought the writing was interesting, so I kept it. I decided to share with everyone, so there it is.

And so it goes for now. I’ll probably have more later, but whether or not I’ll be motivated to post it is another story.
