Notes in which you have found special meaning / coincidences

    The note I am posting has been posted before (circulation finds). However, after seeing this thread: https://www.cointalk.com/threads/1963-k-series-note.364420/ which discusses interpreted "meanings" of the numbers and letters on a note, I had a thread idea.

    I would like to see notes you have found that have special meaning *to you* or otherwise interesting coincidences, even if they are not necessarily "fancy serial numbers".

    The note I have is my "Engineer's Note" or "Kilobyte Note". I can glean all sorts of made up meaning from it which only adds value to me, personally.
    • Serial Number: 1024 is the number of bytes in a kilobyte, which is neat to me.
    • District Letter: K of course is for Kilobyte!
    • District Numbers: 11. Take 11 bits. 00000000000. Flip the 11th position. 10000000000. In binary, that translates to the decimal number 1024!
    • 1024 is a perfect power of two. There are only so many serial numbers with this property. 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 512, 1024, etc.

    I think your note is special due to being a low serial number. As a point of interest, the note is also considered to be a Kennedy dollar, as it was Dallas, and K for Kennedy, and 11 was November, when he was assassinated.
    I found a $20 note the other day with 1776 at the end, but unfortunately just mixed numbers before it.

    ZoidMeister, I love the last one, even though I always have to point out that electrical engineers screw it up using "j" because "i" is already reserved (current as a function of time). :p

    Haha. My math teacher always had the top mug on his desk.
    For the bottom one, it's been a while since I've dealt with sigma notation, but it helped jog the memory.

    Sorry for the derail @Blasty . It's sometimes difficulty to get past engineering jokes.

    I work with an office full of them, but I've never driven a train . . . . . . :rolleyes:

    Back to the currency discussions . . . . . .
