Cool exonumia newp with an automotive connection...
I bought a couple of interesting exonumia pieces at the B&M today. I was going to post them together, but once I did some research, I decided this one woud get its own post.
I've always liked stickered Morgans and have acquired several pieces. When I arrived at the B&M today, @shortnock was already there, going through a new bin of silver dollars they had purchased. I saw this piece right away and had to have it.
This 1921-S Morgan is stickered with an ad that says 'See the '62 Chevy Sept. 29th Steakley Bros. Chevrolet Co'.
Researching that dealership turned up some interesting info. A Corvette forum post noted that they were once in Dallas and known for selling high performance Chevrolets (similar to Don Yenko but not as well-known). One of the brothers, Bobby, was into drag racing and raced a funny car called the Steakley Stinger. Photos below. I couldn't find any credits for the dealership and car images, so thank you, whoever you are
