Old bank giveaway, usually when opening an account. Looks like a genuine Morgan to me.

These bank giveaways were back in the time when banks had loads of silver dollars. If this example came from a trusted source there is little doubt that it is genuine.

No extra value except historical.
If it came from a relative who had an account at this bank then there is family history.

It may not be much, but there is a subset of collectors who enjoy collecting coins in specialty packaging. In my opinion, the older the better, so this qualifies.

Im pretty excited about it. I live close to houston, love the history of it. But, like I said, having a difficult time finding historical info on it

My mother in law told me she's so old that when she was a kid her phone number was 7.

Not before area codes (they date back to 1947), but certainly before 10-digit dialing.

I'd guess early 1960's while silver was still in circulation. There isn't a lot on the internet about this bank, which doesn't appear to exist any more. A few lawsuits and that's about it.

I read that too wideglide, and am not sure that it's the same bank. The one in Houston sounds more local than the big institution in Stockton, but I could be wrong. The SEC registration document for ASLA of Houston TX shows a Southwest Freeway address ca 1984. There's also an ASLA in Florida.

The lawsuit dates from 1964, which is a likely time for the coin and its package.
