Yes, exactly. Matter of fact the newspaper clippings etc.
that were with it are dated in the 60's. Very thick stiff parchment.
With all the toning and sitting around for a few years etc. makes it look authentic. It was interesting though seeing the same note on ebay
but it had a Copy stamp on it (lower left side)Then searching a little more I found one like mine that did sell for a total of $32.00
shipped on ebay. Interesting find anyway. The newspaper clippings all
pertained to coins and silver and gold prices etc. 1961 was when the feds said, no more silver for you citizens. Silver hit $2.10 an ounce
just shortly before that and people where making a mad dash to turn in all their silver certs. At an 80% profit who would blame them. The banks had to honor the certs. and fork over silver in return for the value when the certs. were first issued. At the time of the note issuing silver was $1.29 an oz. Man, wish they would put that back into effect today. Imagine being able to turn in silver certs. today
and get silver at $ 1.29 an ounce or even less, depending on the year
the certs. were issued etc. I was only five years old in 1960 but remember going to the bank with my grandmother and turning in
silver certs. in exchange for a few peace dollars and change.
