I found a bill with interesting markings. It said simply, “Edwin 236012” and “Edwin” as seen in the picture. I have no idea what this means. Someone suggested with another bill that the marking was to keep track of tips. It allowed the bills to be entered into the system and tracked for tax purposes. It’s possible that this is the guy’s name and employee number. Why would the guy’s name be written twice, though? Maybe he thought his name wasn’t legible before.

In other news, I spent some $2 bills at a local Walgreens only to have the cashier put them under the register. What struck me as odd was that she had $2 bills in the tray. Of course, mine were marked which means that the unmarked bills have a better chance of getting back into circulation more quickly. I never realized that it would be so hard to actually try. I have to wonder where the other bills came from, though. Was she keeping them there to swap out later? (Mine were just as good.)

When I was entering bills at the mall today, someone was looking at the computer, wondering what I was doing. I had the chance to explain to him what Where’s George is. I even showed him the most-hit bill on the site. He seemed interested for the last two seconds before he walked away. We might have a new user, but I’m not expecting to find any of his bills.
