During his visit monday he showed us some Gold coins which he values very highly and among which was a $20 Gold piece bearing the Date of 1908,which was coined during Teddy Roosevelt s administration but it will be remembered that these particular coins were put out without the words quot in god we Trust quot on them and of course were called in immediately. Or. Foster wrote to Washington for one of the coins and was informed that by sending to the mint at Denver colo., and forwarding $20 he could get one which would serve As a Keepsake. He also had a $3 Gold piece dated 1854, which was a rare Beauty it being of pure Metal and very soft in fact it would not stand hard usage because it contained none of the hard Metal that gives tone and life to coins in constant usage. Among his collection and the rarest of All was an old quot wild cat quot $5 Bill which was issued by a Bank by the name of quot Gramercy Bank quot then in existence and doing business in Lafayette ind., about the year 1852, As near As we could discern the faded Date. This old Bill was signed by Ellis then auditor of state and d. T. Nexsen As president of the Bank. Of course the latter names might not be exactly Correct but it was As near As we could decipher them. On the Bottom of the old Bill was the clause quot secured by the pledge of Public stocks quot indicating we presume that the Bank was a joint affair and secured by stocks owned by several parties interested in the banking institution. Of course or. Foster will never attempt to Cash this Bill or have it redeemed but the question is if he did desire to turn it in who or where would he go to find any of the parties or stocks which were behind it and made it Worth its face value some one please stand up and enlighten us on the Bazaar and Chicken supper.
