Yup, I used to participate in that quite a bit. But then I had a "What's the use" moment. I still get word when a bill hits. But it just isn't a thrill for me anymore.

Found a Where's George $10 Hamilton note the other day, it made me chuckle. I didn't check the history.

Haven't seen one in a long time.

I remember seeing them a lot in Las Vegas and Laughlin 10 or 15 years ago. Actually got a few consecutive numbered ones which told me people were putting packs of these things back into circulation after marking them up.

I just spent em and sent them on their merry way.

Never found one personally but I have met a few collectors who have shown me a few. These collectors wanted me to get involved with "Where's Willy" (our Canadian version) & which is intended to track our $5 (lowest denomination).
See:
https://www.whereswilly.com/

My first experience with a "Where's Willy" note was with the stamp on a 2004 $10 BER short prefix which was AU & so crisp. I was so that I can remember the day almost like it was yesterday b/c I remember being excited to find that tough prefix & then seeing that dang stamp (which should have been on a $5) on the front . We collectors all knew that the 1st Journey series was being actively recalled & getting an upgrade in security features. This note's prefix was one of the last prefixes & the 2003 BER can set one back hundreds of dollars in UNC. This note was tough to find but also qualified as a "deal-breakers" (graffiti or stamp). So back into the wild it went & I never found another 2004 BER $10 afterwards. (I was even too to enter the note on their database!) Turned out that they weren't as scarce as the 2003 but they still command a decent premium.

There's also a EuroBill Tracker site (which I periodically reference):

I've been a member for a long time. It's fun to see where bills travel ad how long between entries.

Harmless fun. You should try it out.

Found some of these in collections we bought in the coin shop(coin shop volunteer here) updated on the website and into the register it go. Sometimes we get reactions from people who received them in change from us, it was fun. :)

I just checked my WG profile and the last time I entered a note was in 2014. The last hit of a note I entered was 2021 (I had entered the note in 2005).

That is simultaneously interesting and depressing.
