    Description

    William Jennings Bryan: Rare Bryan Dollar Cardboard Disc. Schornstein #907 [Bryan Money], listed as "Very rare". 3" cardboard disc with identical imprint on both sides, printed in black ink on silver paper. There is a portrait of Bryan with the slogan "In Silver We Trust For the Other 47 Cents". Unlike other varieties which have an uncomplimentary caricature of Bryan and the slogan "In God We Trust for the Other 47 cents", we feel this is a pro-Bryan piece. It was issued by Dime Savings of Philadelphia. Some normal wear, most noticeable on one side which displays two parallel lines of discoloration/wear in the right field. Ink impression is stronger on that side than the reverse side. Good overall. The first example we have seen. The Bryan Money specialists should be "in hot pursuit!"
