I received this bill from my mother years ago. It was handed down to her that supposedly came from a father she never knew a he was claimed to be a sargent or general. What I am wondering is if it's worth having the signatures authenticated.

You don't give us any details of what you want. If those signatures are those of the 1927 NY Yankees, go for it. If it was just a bunch of GIs making a keepsake for a buddy, fugetaboutit.

Properly oriented pictures of both sides of the note would be helpful.

For more info on short snorters do a Google search for "The Short Snorter Project"

There is lots of info about them there.

The notation at the top left of the note is PB2Y-3 which is a Coronado flying patrol boat bomber. The signatures are likely Navy so there is probably not a sergeant or general among them.

The PB2Y Coronado had a crew of 10 and it appears there are a lot more than 10 names on the note.

An alternative might be that these names were somehow involved in the design or manufacturing of the aircraft. Did your mother or her father ever live in the San Diego area, particularly just before WWII? Consolidated, the company that made the Coronado was based in San Diego.

If those names can be linked to the design of the aircraft it might give the note some desirability to WWII collectors.

I know that Ray Ellis is one of the signatures. From what I found online he was the last survivor of a battle from ww2. R.i.p.

There are many shortsnorters out in coinland. YOU have to take the time to decipher the signatures and figure them out yourself.

Value is dependent on whether you got famous people on it and who is willing to pay for it.

Posting pictures that are properly oriented helps us to help you. Full size helps. Front and back helps.

Visit shortsnorterproject.org for more information. Good luck!

On values, I have two $1 WW2 era shortsnorters I liked that I paid about 65$ each for at a coin show up north a few years ago.

One was signed by Humphrey Bogart and his USO entertainment troupe while visiting the North Africa Theater of operations. I did have some help from Forum members here deciphering some of the other names on the note and finding an old newspaper article about Bogarts USO African adventure.

The other was signed by a bunch of WW2 pilots that were ferrying planes and/or transferring from the mainland to England through Gander Newfoundland. It's heartbreaking to search their names in the records and see that some only flew a few missions and were killed after arriving in England. The original reason I purchased that note was because it was also signed by Treasury Secretary Henry Morgentheu whose faciimile signature was also on the note.

I have one other note that I thought was a WW2 era shortsnorter that turned out to be more of a sports related item. It is a series 1928 red seal $1 United States note with about 25 signatures across the front and back. It took a while for me to finally figure it out but that note has the signatures of Johnny Rawlings and ladies from The All American Girls Baseball League including Ruth Richards, Pepper Paire, Jane Stoll, Dottie Hunter, etc. (Rockford Peaches). Those red seal $1 notes were purposely issued and circulated mainly in Puerto Rico in the 1940's and those ladies played a lot of exhibition baseball games in the islands during the Winter months in the 1940's.

I have no idea when, where or how much I paid for that note but to me it is priceless!

You just have to take your time and search the internet one name at a time. Eventually you'll score with one name and that sometimes opens the door to everything else. Prices can be all over the map with these things though. Good luck!
