If any body happened to find a bag with $50,000 USD in unmarked bills at Historicon please contact me. Thank you.

sorry, the bag I found had a little less than $50,000 USD in it. Must be someone else's' bag.

Russ, always remember, it's "unmarked NONSEQUENTIAL bills" and generally you want to specify denominations, so you're not trying to make house payments with singles, or get stuck with two-dollar bills or fifties which people might remember. So many people get the details wrong…

I never said I had one or lost one -- I said "if anyone happened to find one" 😆😅🤔

I was going to use it to buy a few boxes of GW figures.

Reminds me of a convention story I heard once. File it under"if it wasn't true it should have been."

At a big con a guy was running several sessions of the same event. He takes his figures back to his room each evening, but leaves the scenics up. So, this one evening he gets back to his room and remembers he left a high end digital camera on the table in a Chivas Regal bag. The kind of bag a lot of gamers use to carry dice. He's too beat to go all the way back and decides to trust to the good intentions of gamers not to steal.

He's hopeful, but worried. When he gets back to the table the next morning, sure enough, his camera is sitting there unmolested,…

but somebody copped the dice bag.
