“The Last run on Uncle Sam’s Silver” – U.S. Treasury deadline set to end the exchange of silver for U.S. $1, $5, and $10 bills---called “Silver Certificates.” For the first time, U.S. money would no longer be tied to a precious metal.

Important Note: Two pages, including the front cover, fold out into a 3 page wide ad for a Del Monte foods sweepstakes. This is why the cover is not as wide as the pages behind it. This is not a flaw or damage.
Covers are glossy, binding is very good. Original advertising inserts and all pages intact in binding. Very little signs of handling other than very slight edge wear. The front cover has a small color flake at the bottom edge, but this is not a tear or hole. Page that shows behind the cover margin has slight edge tear. Slight margin toning. Mailing label on lower left corner of front cover.
