The signed bills were at the center of a prank, told in full in Russell Still’s book, ”Relics of the Space Race”; Grissom reportedly moved the bills from their hiding place behind the instrument panel and substituted play money so that when the launch supervisor in charge of the flown souvenirs went to retrieve them, he found the play money instead.
