Gosh, that was back before some folks got 'smart' enough to support 'money' which could be gamed by banks and State alike...at the expense of everyone else.

The only people who want fiat money want to spend what they don't have.

Hey, at least the salt is a useable commodity. I am not sure what real value America's money has today. I guess you could use it as toilet tissue or maybe as tinder to start a fire.

What's outlandish about fact?

Are you defending fiat paper money?

Fiat money protects banks and the State.

Real money protects everyone else .

You referenced the thread, not one of the posts.

Please tell us what makes the thread outlandish, which is what you actually claimed.

And for our information, please tell us wether or not you are a supporter of currencies not backed by actual commodities.

It wasn't that long ago that the US greenback was actually supported by silver -1968.

Hmmmm - that would be about the same time we started down the slippery slope to the spending unchained debt pit. Fancy that...

Inside one of the Federal Reserve Banks is a display of some older forms of currency.

One is a carved stone weighing around 20lbs. Aside from the carving/inscriptions, it has no value over any other stone of similar size.

Not sure what you all mean by "real money" since it is a medium which has an agreed value without having any intrinsic value in itself.

Personally , I like to barter and trade. Win win for both sides. I only use paper money because that's the way the world works.

I actually have two of those silver certificates, a $1 from 1935, and a $5 from 1953. I got them when I worked in retail. I was counting the cash drawer and thought WHY IS THIS BLUE ? when I looked at the bills. At first I thought they were counterfeit until I saw the "silver certificate" on them. That was 10-15 years ago, if I remember right it was some teenaged kid that game them to us. He probably stole them from his dad, because the 1935 bill is in really good shape.
