Issued to pay American forces participating in Operation Torch in North Africa during World War II, Silver Certificates with distinctive yellow seals are always popular. But here's one that's extra special – a yellow-seal $1 Silver Certificate that's also a coveted "short snorter" note!

These "short snorter" nickname comes from these notes' tradition. Troops carried these notes on their tours, asking people they met along the way to sign them. As each note filled, more would be taped end to end. Longer short snorters meant free drinks at the bar, as the person with the shortest had to buy a round of drinks!
