    Default $5 Bill

    On the back of the $5 bill is the Lincoln Memorial. At the top of the memorial are 26 states. One of which is simply "Carolina". Eliminating that state, since it's not specific to North or South Carolina, that makes 25 states. $5 bill --> 5X5 grid --> 25 States. It could be something...or not.

    Actually only Hampshire is on the bill - represents New Hampshire and Carolina represents South Carolina

    see article:
    The vignette on the reverse of the five-dollar bill depicts the Lincoln Memorial. You may be aware that, engraved on that Memorial are the names of the 48 states in 1922, which was the year the Memorial was dedicated. There are engravings of 26 State names on front of the building, which appears on the note vignette. As a result, only 26 of the States appear on the note.

    The upper frieze of the Memorial bears the States of Arkansas, Michigan, Florida, Texas, Iowa, Wisconsin, California, Minnesota, Oregon, Kansas, West Virginia, Nevada, Nebraska, Colorado, and North Dakota. The lower Frieze lists the States of Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, and New York. In addition, the engravings show the abbreviated names "Hampshire" (for New Hampshire) and "Carolina" (for South Carolina). We have no information why the prefixes for these states were not used

    Well, a $5 bill is certainly

    5 to a side

    and has a code of even numbers = 8 numbers in the serial number (least on the one I have )

    but what in the world could that mean....there are jillions of them out there

    This is my first post . But I thought it was also interesting, in this vein of thought, that there are twelve pillars along the front of the Memorial. Yeah, that was a little neat, I thought

    It seems some of the people new to the forum are really reading and responding to old threads. It's cool because it brings up things we have forgotten about and can reconsider now that we have and idea of how the hunt and clues work.
