Bill Demarest - Hollywood Stars Signed Short Snorter
U.S. One Dollar Silver Certificate - Series 1935A - Serial # L66991655C -  Submitted by Louise Spina on June 17, 2009.
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."
