This week: Tracking Currency
My grandmother always warned me to wash my hands after handling money because you never know where it has been! At Where’s George? you can enter the denomination and serial number of a bill, and, if it has been entered in the database before, you can track where it has been and when.
If you enter a bill, chances are it will be new to the database, but you might luck out and find out something about its history. You can also look at “George’s Top Ten” for lists of well-traveled bills. The map of hits by county is also interesting.
