The Short Snorter Project
United States One Dollar Silver Certificate - Series 1935A - Serial Number S84708271C - Submitted by Chris Dawson who
writes, "I read with interest your postings on the Short Snorter website.  We just recently closed down my folks
residence and found, among my late dad’s belongings, a wallet with a Short Snorter in it from a flight he took from
London to NYC in 1945.  He was part of a team from MIT that engineered and installed the first radar system in London.  
He flew back on the Pan Am American Clipper #NC18606.  His name was George Dawson.
Have a look and let me know
what you think.
It appears that it may have been taped to 3 other bills - a 10 shilling British note, a 10 shilling Irish note,
and a Canadian dollar.  I found them in the same spot.  I guess the practice was to tape together a bill from every country
you visited."
