TURN YOUR SILVER INTO BULLETS, VINTAGE POSTER SUNDAY


Turn Silver into bullets, vintage poster courtesy of US National Archives
Now this poster is really interesting.  This one is from WWI actually, circa 1915.  It's kind of crazy to imagine this today with the price of silver as it is.  Here, they urged people to bring in their silver coins, which at this time were of course actually 90% silver and were then given Scrip Vouchers.

Today we put silver up and save it on it's own for potential future increases in value.  Not sure how many would do this now, ha.

I keep silver, and have been buying coins, as a means of commerce "just in case" and of course as an investment in the future. I would NOT turn loose of mine either, bwahaha.

I think this is a great old poster... trying to get caught up on blogs today, and glad to see this!

I totally understand! I suspect many people feel the same way. :-)

Isn't it cool? At first I thought, silver bullets? Probably too many werewolf stories, LOL. Nice to 'see' you!
