Interesting Vintage coin related advertising!

Purchased many years ago for less than a dollar…
Can you imagine the current value of the 20 1875 MS (likely Philly) Seated halves?

    Neat! (but yeah... put those unc seated silver coins in that metal holder!!)

    No advertising for this one, but its leather would be a lot more forgiving to your coins. It only has 4 rows (10c, 1c, 25c, 50c?) which might mean it was from before five-cent nickels were introduced (although I remember seeing somewhere that nickels took a while to be accepted in the West due to their lack of precious metals)

    It would be cool to find one of those metal roll holders to go along with that advertising piece.

    That McGovern holder is nice.... If used today, would make scanning for silver easy :D And would put a stop to including 'filler' coins in rolls. Cheers, RickO
