Everybody has something that has a story behind it. Maybe you've got a family heirloom that has been passed down from generation to generation. Maybe you have a walking cane that once belonged to Winston Churchill. A banknote can have a story behind it just as much as any other item.

In this section, you will find collectors telling the stories behind their notes. You will hear of short snorters, the reason we had shinplasters, the note that started the collection, the $1 bills given by a grandmother every Christmas, and other exciting tales.
