POW AND ITALIAN SERVICE UNIT CHITS of WWII

Exonumia | Longstrider

I have only been collecting POW chits for about a year. I find them amazing bits of history. My interest grew out of my MPC studies. Since my dad served in Italy during WWII and we are of Italian descent, I try to concentrateon that area but also collect others that interred Italian soldiers as well as Italian Service Units, “ISU”.

1893 DIA DE LOS MUERTAS MORGAN

Exonumia | Longstrider

I am going to keep this short as my hand has had some surgery. I was looking for a 1893 Morgan dollar for my type set album the other day. This coin is a bit pricey as there were only 378,000 minted in Philly. I ran into this cast hobo type dollar, I am calling it. I am a fan of the Mexican holiday of “Dia de los Muertos” or Day of the Dead, and Hobo Nickels after meeting "Tiny" at a Summer Seminar, so I picked it up.

CONECA ANNIVERSARY SILVER BAR/MEDAL

Exonumia | Longstrider

This is going to sound like I am "tooting my own horn", as is said, but I am putting this blog up as I want to show the silver bar. Around last month I sent in an article to the CONECA newsletter, ErrorScope, for consideration. Much to my surprise it was accepted. It can now be seen on the new Sept/Oct issue on pages 14 & 15. It is a rewrite of one of my blogs; "Back in the VAM Saddle Again" that first appeared here. It would never have happened if not for the help and prodding of my friend here at our site. You know who you are Cuz. As a gift for "being published", my beautiful, young wife gave me the gift below.

CARMEL by the SEA DEPRESSION SCRIPT

Exonumia | Longstrider

Today I have something unusual to show everybody. I also don't know a lot about it. I could use any help I can get. I saw this item at auction. I bid and won it for a Christmas present for a friend. It is a 1933 Carmel by the Sea, California-Business Association-Depression Script Note with Unemployment Relief Stamps one back. As I understand it, if the back has been filled with 3 cent stamps, it can be traded for one dollar in merchandise within one year of the date, March 11, 1933.
