Tracking George


Occasionally, I find a "Where's George?" bill in the change I am given. Recently, I discovered two of them in my wallet.

When the serial number is entered on the "Where's George?" website, the path the bill has traveled is detailed. The bill, pictured above, started its journey in Jackson, TN on April 1, 2008. Its made its 1,160 mile journey at a rate of 2.2 miles per day.



The bright red stamp on the side and top of this bill is what caught my eye when I pulled it out of my wallet to leave a tip. According to "Where's George?" it began its travels in Dodge City, KS on May 26, 2009. This bill had journey 573 miles at a rate of 4.8 miles per day when I registered its serial number.

Have you discovered any of these marked bills and checked on its journey to your wallet?

  1. Must have been your lucky day get two marked bills. I don't think I've ever got one, though my son did once.

  5. Hi Nancy ~
    I actually have received a $1 bill with Track this bill at www.WheresGeorge.com. My dollar bill traveled 132 miles and took 137 days until it reached me. (0.96 miles per day) I'm disappointed that no one else has registered the bill yet. I would love to see where it has traveled too!

  6. I have had several of these stamped bills... but ashamed to admit I've never taken the time to bring them into the house to the computer to sit down and enter them in... I just keep my purse in my van, out in the garage.

    That is neat though that you can see how many miles it's traveled... if I'm lucky enought ot receive another, I promise to do it. ;)

    Thanks for sharing & Love from Texas! ~bonnie
