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.
