Most people never take notice who's signature appears on paper money of any denomination. Actually, some every rich and powerful people have scribed their names to American currency over the years. Alexander Hamilton, Salmon Chase, Andrew Mellon, to name few. Now, you can add a two more to the is of rich and powerful.

The signatures belong to the U.S. Treasurer and the Secretary of the Treasury.

The only one I can think of off the top of my head that I remember seeing is Lloyd Bentsen (Democrat VP candidate in 1988; Clinton's first Secretary of the Treasury in 1993)

The names that seemed to me to be on there the longest (take note I'm in my twenties) are Mary Ellen Withrow and Robert E Rubin.

If you want some fun with currency look at fractional notes (five cents, ten cents, twenty-five cents) and $3 bills issued by private banks in the Civil War era.

There is one Sec of Treasury named Barr who they only made the bills for a month or so and some folks collect. I knew a guy bought 50 or so for his parents. I got 1-2 from circulation so kept them for kicks.

You know, you don't necessarily have to be one of the rich and famous and/or a Secretary of the Treasury to have your name appear on US currency. All you have to be is a long time coordinator at a school that has recent built a Big Six table for its fundraising events and gives "special" instructions to the layout maker.

FYI..this had been in use for about 25 events so far and nobody has picked up on it yet. Our little secret.
