Louise wrote, " I recently came across a silver certificate that originally belonged to my brother (now deceased). I had
no idea what a short snorter was until I looked at your website. There are several celebrity autographs – Cary Grant,
Betty Grable, Harry James, Burt Lancaster, Jimmy Durante, Reginald Owen and several others that I cannot read. The
face of the bill has six signatures- four of which I can read: Phil Goldstone, Marsha Hunt, Jimmy Durante and Reginald
Owen. The reverse has eight signatures - Betty Grable, Harry James, Burt Lancaster, Cary Grant, Al Tucker, Joel
McCrea, Diane Lynne. I am not certain about the other - C.W. Everhardt 1st Lt. A.C. The top of the reverse reads Bill
Demarest Short Snorter and the bottom has a date June 25, 1944. My brother died in 1984 from a skydiving accident
and was only 36. I can only guess that my dad who was a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy might have given it to him. He
died in 1997. I have had this bill for many years and I thank you for your website. I had no idea what it was."
