Just got an email from WG telling me I got a hit on a $1 note I entered 13 years, 111 days ago, and this is the first hit it's received, only making it 17 miles from where I entered it.

I haven't entered notes for over a decade now, so this was a surprise.

I agree, that must be an unusually long service period.

It likely got used as a bookmark and forgotten or buried at the bottom of a drawer or something similar and just uncovered. They just don't last that long with regular use.

I found one back in 2017 that was first entered in 2003. 341 days from first entry to the second, and then 13 years 9 days from there to me.

So that's 13 years 350 days, only a bit longer than yours.

Hi mcshilling,
I believe he means that a bill that he entered the serial numbers on the "Where's George" website 13 years ago was recently entered again. It is a website that tracks bills when the serial number is entered.
I hope this helps.
