SCOVILL'S DEPRESSION SCRIP

Also regarding last week's item by Dick Johnson on the Scovill
company, Neil Shafer writes: "Neat information on Scovill- I
would like to add the fact that the company also issued two
series of Depression Scrip in 1933.  The first consisted of
altered bearer checks of 1, 2, 5 and 10 dollars, all dated Mar.
4, 1933.  The second issue, dated Mar. 11, had only 2 values, 1
and 5 dollars, and showed portraits of two men who I assume are
the founders of the company.  All are fairly scarce."

[On Google I located a cached copy of a Lyn Knight sale of a
lot of four of the Scovill depression scrip notes.  The one
dollar denomination is pictured.   cached Lyn Knight sale
