Until July 2008, I had never heard of "short snorter". A short snorter is a banknote which circulated during World War II and the Korean War upon which signatures were exchanged between those travelling together or meeting up at different events. Short snorters are frequently found on U.S. one dollar Silver Certificates and foreign banknotes of lower denominations. Specific information about the individuals signing these notes add to the interest of the artifact (i.e., bomb group, fighter squadron, etc.).
