Years ago, Reader’s Digest published a book called Mysteries of the Unexplained. It’s one of the best collections of stories and anecdotes about all the stuff that interests me. I page through it from time to time and usually find some small treasure that I haven’t read before. The story about this dollar bill is one such story.
The dollar bill pictured above was issued in Dallas just two weeks before John F. Kennedy was assassinated in that city, thus its name. Dallas was and is the location of the 11th of the 12 Federal Reserve Bank districts. The bill has the letter K to the left of Washington’s image, which is the 11th letter of the alphabet.
In addition, you’ll see the #11 in each corner of the bill. The serial number K23456789A begins with a K and ends with an A – Kennedy Assassination.
Eleven also stands for November, the 11th month of the year, two 11s equal 22, the date he was killed, and the series number is 1963, the year of the assassination.
What are the odds? It’s like the DaVinci Code of dollar bills.
