|Title||Note, Federal Reserve, one dollar bill stamped with wheresgeorge.com|
|Object Name||Note, Federal Reserve|
|Description||This is a federally issued U.S. $1 bill, series 2006. On the left edge of the front of bill, "wheresgeorge.com" has been stamped in purple ink within the cream colored border. Additional stamping includes: the words "Follow This Bill" and "www.wheresgeorge.com" which surround the Department of Treasury seal; two arrows (one pointing up and a little to the right, the other pointing down and a little to the right) to the left of this text; and an outline of the state of Nebraska with a large dot representing the location of Omaha and the words "OMAHA" and "NEBRASKA" along the top and bottom of the state outline respectively. All this appears to be the result of one stamp - the ink transitions from a dark reddish pink on the left (the arrows) to purple on the right (the state outline). On the back of the bill the message "Enter series & serial # at wheresgeorge.com" is stamped in red ink along the bottom margin of the bill.|
