I actually broke $100,000 in entered bills. Not exactly big in the grand scheme of things, but definitely worth sharing here. Now, mind you, that doesn’t mean I have $100,000 on me right now. Going to the casino and having access to a cash register both help. I can swap out bills, so $200 or $300 will go a long way.

I still don’t know how others are able to enter more than me. For me to enter and stamp bills takes a while, and that’s assuming I’m not distracted. Of course, I get distracted easily by things like food, TV and (on occasion) this blog. Right now, I’m stamping bills, which I think I’ll get back to. I just wanted to share.

At work today, we had a guy come in and notice the bills. He said that someone in the area must be spending them. I had to smile because I knew who it was. He said that he’d seen the bills all over, which I consider to be a good sign. Spending them at McDonalds and Subway seems to be paying off. I haven’t had many people confront me about it. It seems like everyone else gets the mean customers, but I think there may be some exaggeration going on.

I found a bill, photographed here, that shows someone trying to raise the note in a very obvious way. I have to think that this was meant as a joke or something. It was still interesting to document.

As for this one, I sense something familiar. I found another bill, seen here. The other one was a five, but it still had the same distinctive ‘AIDA’ written on it.

This person seems to be doing it on a lot of bills. I’ve hit only 51 bills from other georgers since signing up almost two years ago. Here, I’ve seen at least two from the same person. I don’t think I have doubles from any one person. (Yes, I’ve gotten my own bills back, but that’s mostly at the casino.)

Maybe I’ll figure out who this Aida person is.

I found some 2006 series $5 bills, but they’re not the redesigned bills. I was surprised to see them since the redesigns were supposed to come out in March. I think the serials of the new bills are supposed to start with I. These start with H and Where’s George still recognized them. In case you want pictures, they look essentially like the 2003A bills.

There’s no purple 5 on the back or cool colors. They look the same as always. I guess this means that we have to wait until March to see the new bills. I just thought I’d share and see if anyone had an explanation as to why there are 2006 bills that look the same as 2003A
