The Short Snorter Project
In recent weeks, I stumbled upon this quite interesting and historically exciting piece from Bikini Atoll. The
denomination is "5 Beacons".  A No Date issue but surmised to be from 1945-1947 time frame.  The U.S.S Sumner is
the main portrait with several minor vignettes referring to Bikini Atoll itself. Does anyone know more about this lovely
note or have a spare to sell me or a dealer I could be referred to that may have a variety of these notes.  I want to thank
Tom Sparks for helping me decipher this little mystery.  Blessings To All!
