om Cooper who writes, "At a Pasadena (Texas) Coin Club meeting, a peculiar note came up for sale. I bought it
because I like historical notes. I studied it and tried to research on the Internet. Then an article came out in Coin World's
Paper Money Values about graffiti on notes. I wrote Michele Orzano and she referred me to you. I would really like to
know if any of the signers are still alive. I think the 551st would be interested in the note, or military history buffs.
