So, I've taken the currency from the last two posts, and tucked them away with my mother's collection of notes and coins, which includes these.
This is a small 1923 dated 25 cent note that my mother's uncle gave her when she was a little girl. At the time he called it a "shin plaster." Mom has kept it ever since.
Although my life's interest has been military antiques, my grandmother started a coin and currency collection that was passed on to my mother, who continued to add to it. At this point mom is in her 80s, and although the collection is still hers, I've become custodian/caretaker of the collection, and have begun adding things I've acquired here and there, since it will eventually all end up with me anyway.
Hey CW, no categories for non-US currency???
