Dennman, You are welcome.
I had forgotten that I had this until I saw the counterstamps that chafemasterj was uncertain of. That made me look at this and I was amazed that they were part of this set.

Thank you oldno7. Like Dennman said that takes the guesswork out of these. Looks like I have all but 3 or 4. Oldno7, are those coins glued to that card? The backs of mine are evenly toned meaning they didn't spend any time with splotches of glue on them. Just curious. Also I contacted the seller of the ones I purchased and he received them as is. With no card or anything.

Mid 1800s family. Husband, Wife and Daughter...






Or possibly a modern day Amish or Mennonite family.

Edit: According to the card it is "Mormon migration to Salt Lake City".

chafemasterj, The back of the card has cutouts so that you can see the obverse of all of the coins.
I am actually surprised that none of the coins have fallen out.

Senior Moment!!

I meant to say that you could see the Reverse of the coins, NOT obverse.

The 1982-d of the guy at a podium is for the Battle of Atlanta.

Just looking at the card...


I think the guy at the podium is Abe himself giving the Gettysburg address - the Battle for Atlanta is a canon..

So that makes Three Abes on one cent!

This would appear to be a Model T Ford. I'm not a car guy so those of you that are up on the classics please correct me if I'm wrong.








Edit: Now that we have oldno7's background I see that I was correct to a point. "First Model T Ford 1908"

Very nice!

Looks like an old Ford for sure. The cent is a Model T. The photo is a Model A. Like comparing a Focus to a Fiesta.
