    I have always wondered where my money went after I spent it, so I stumbled upon this website after finding it on a dollar bill. Check it out.

    Back when I was younger and far less mature, my friends and I would write our Xanga's on $20 bills. Turns out, we got a few comments from far off peoples. :eek:

    Speaking as a coin and currency collector ...


    PLEASE DON'T DO THIS


    It makes the bill absolutely worthless to those of us who collect them. I came across a $2 bill last week that would've been worth about $60. But, because someone had stamped it with one of those www.wheresgeorge.com stamps, it makes it completely uncollectable.

    I got a one dollar bill with a stamp on it

    Here is the link to the traking.

    I feel sorry for you collectors but I've seen some strange stuff on money. I think I have a $1 with "jesus saves" on it somewhere.


    I've always liked the spider on the front of the dollar.

    I played with Where's George a few years back, I still get hits regularly.

    Here is my profile there.

    I haven't really participated since finding MacRumors but it is kind of interesting to see where you money travels. ;)

    Here is my map by counties. :)

    I've put in like 50 bills and have a few hits, but haven't done it in a long time.

    On the subject of amusingly marked bills...I found this one a while ago and had to take a pic:

    I write my number on almost every dollar bill I come across. So far, I've gotten a few interesting calls. It makes me giggle. :D

    Bro, if it's really that big a deal, I have a whole friggin' stack of $1 bills I'll sell you, and I'll only charge you $2 apiece. :cool:

    Speaking as a bill collector as well I also agree, please don't do that, because after enough markings, vending machines and Wal-Mart self checkout machines tend to reject them.

    I'm a bill collector. I collect them to spend them.

    Don't try to use these in vending machines or you'll be there for a while.

    I know that this thread is a few years old, but do $2 bills actually have more than face-value? I have a couple sitting in my drawer! :eek:

    They probably do have a larger value than their face-value, but I would assume that it's not much, and the one worth $60 isn't just every ordinary $2 bill.
