One of our local members has a couple articles this month, one on "Short snorters", ie when dollar bills etc. are signed by a number of military personnel:

The other is on Hard times tokens and satirical notes:

    I enjoyed this short snorter story, too, although I would question some of the claims. Maybe all true but a few footnotes or references would help.

    I don't usually buy short snorters but this one was too good to pass on. It's on a $2 split in half.
