Pagan savings challenge, week twenty-one:  near and far

If you're a magical sort of Pagan, you may know that money from farther away can be used for money-drawing and prosperity spells.  Foreign money is often used in this way.  That makes sense to me as a Hellenist; Hermes isn't god of travel and commerce without reason.  I submit to my readers that if money coming from a distance has some added value, then knowing where a particular piece of currency has been is also valuable.

That's right, I'm talking about my currency-tracking hobby, Where's George? by name.  I attended a gathering this past weekend.  That's when a bunch of hard-core Georgers get together and trade bills with each other, in the hopes that those bills will get to places never before reached -- I myself have seen one of my bills arrive in St Martin thanks to one of these gatherings.  These are hobbyists at the top of their heap, some of them having entered over a quarter-million separate bills into the system over the course of many years.
