A little background on what a SHORT SNORTER is...
"To expand on the definition as it was known in and about 1942--If you crossed the ocean by air, you were a member of a "club." You got people to sign a banknote: In the case of an American, it was usually a dollar bill. If you were British, it was a 10 shilling note. The "game" was that, if someone asked you for your "short snorter" you had to produce it. If you didn't, you owed them a drink. Or a "dollar." Most short snorters are from WWII."
Check condition for yourself from the scans but still has some crispness to it.
