The Georgia Show Case Company - Good Lines And Correct Build

 By: Handini

An old check from 1924 for $30 from the Georgia Show Case Company of Montgomery Alabama. I did not find much information on this item but it says on the front that they were manufacturers of store, bank, and office fixtures.

The check was for their account at the Alabama Bank And Trust Company, and has some rubber stamp impressions on the reverse from the City National Bank of Selma, Alabama, and The Fourth National Bank of Montgomery Alabama.

There is an interesting vignette on the top left corner of the check. It shows a lady taking a dive and it says: "Good Lines And Correct Build". She is wearing a red swimming cap and a black full swimsuit. Waves can be ween splashing in the background. Very nostalgic of the time period.

  1. The check from the 1930s don't look much different. It is starting to look like the 1930's in the U.S. and the world with the global financial system in a mess again though. This check was before we had inflation in the U.S. due to being taken off the gold standard.

    1. I wish we were back on the gold standard versus this fiat currency they have forced upon us.

    2. Well, the FDIC just sent a memo to banks stating that they can now hold gold as collateral in their reserves. this is the first time that gold is rate 0% risk by the FDIC. They are obviously preparing for some type of shift. I recommend all my family members buy gold and silver, they think i'm going crazy though as they trust the banking system.

    3. I hope this means that things are slowly returning to tangible assets rather than a fiat currency.

  2. The fiat currency collapse is something that i do not want to happen in the U.S. But the more money the Fed prints, the less our dollar is worth. India and China are already talking about trading outside of the dollar. I think buying gold is a good idea.

    1. Those of us who own gold will become millionaires once the dollar collapses.
