The Chicago Coin Club has issued a souvenir card, which it presented it to every attendee at its meeting held in conjunction with the Chicago Paper Money Expo March 18-21 at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill.
The card includes a history and shows a $10,000 Federal Reserve Bank Note from the 1934 series. This note was the highest denomination to circulate in the general public and shows the portrait of Salmon P. Chase, treasury secretary under President Lincoln.
Just 100 serially numbered souvenir cards were produced, and 35 were distributed at the meeting. More were sold at the club’s information table during the show.
Jeffrey Rosinia, assisted by Elliot Krieter, put the souvenir card together.
The Chicago Coin Club has issued a long series of souvenir cards of Chicago bank notes, and collectors who wish to include them in their holdings can see the list at www.chicagocoinclub.org.
Collectors unable to attend the CPMX meeting can order this latest souvenir card for $5 plus $1 shipping. Make checks payable to Chicago Coin Club and send to P.O. Box 2301, Chicago, IL 60690.
