This envelope (4 days left to bid) dates back to when Rogers Park used to print its own money. You also used to get fifty cents when opening an account for five dollars or more with this token. On the back of the envelope it states "member federal reserve system".
Hard to imagine this corner of the neighborhood used to look so swanky, model T's and all. Especially during the Depression (1931).
UP FOR BID IS THIS:
VINTAGE "THE ROGERS PARK NATIONAL BANK CHICAGO, IL TWO CENT WASHINGTON COVER" ITEM IS ORIGINAL & AUTHENTIC DIMENSIONS: 3 5/8" x 6.5" GREAT CONDITION
Our banking system in (West) Rogers Park has indeed fallen from grace.
