This image is a little larger than cabinet card size and was photographed by Hackett of Fairmount Indiana at about the turn of the 20th century.
The boy has numerous bills out and several 1896 $5 Silver Certificate Educational Series notes are clearly visible. Unfortunately, the back of the notes are face up.
He also has stacks of Morgan Silver Dollars.
I guess that he was an early silver collector!
In current values he would have a very significant collection.
