Why might it be a steal?

(The answer is in my ghost story, "Phantoms of the Ramapos." You can download the free e-book, set in 1938 in Allendale, Ho-Ho-Kus and Mahwah here.)

The answer: The five-dollar bill might be a steal because it (theoretically) could have been part of the $10,511.77, stolen from the First National Bank of Allendale in downtown Allendale on April 7, 1938. The money was never recovered but the phantoms live on.  (The building was most recently a Bank of America branch.)
