Comments: My hobby is collecting any old or new World Paper Money. Along with the collection are also "Funny Money" items. Two of these items are a 5 cent bill and a 10 cent bill labeled JAPTAN ISLAND. They are both about one dollar size. They have a drawn coconut tree in the center with ENIWETOK underneath it. I have also been to Eniwetok. Each note has at the bottom "FIVE CENTS IN TRADE" AND "TEN CENTS IN TRADE" respectively. On each note where the U.S. notes have the letter in a circle showing where our money was printed, they have a similar symbol with JOINT TASK GROUP - 132.3 - RECREATION COUNCIL - PRINTED ABOARD - USS ESTES agc-12. I thought this might be of interest to you. If you happen to have any like this and have an extra copy, I would appreciate getting it. Both of mine are only in fair condition. Thank you.

After her shakedown we anchored in the middle of S.F. bay and spent a couple of days loading ammo. Then on to Pearl Harbor for De-gaussing. Our home port was Yokosuka Japan. In Korean waters we patroled both coasts but spent most of our time in Inchon takeing care of business.
