Here are a few photos of some of wooden scrip in my collection. Wood scrip differs from wooden nickels. Wood scrip is about the size of a lottery ticket and wafer thin. Both sides contain information pertaining to the event, typically a local centennial-type celebration, and they usually held value at one time. The 1949 Malden, Massachusetts scrip, for instance, was valued at "five wooden nickels' or 25 cents, and was redeemable at any Malden bank until 2:30PM on Friday June 17, 1949. The other piece pictured is from the 1970 Loganville, Pennsylvania sesquicentennial and was valued at $1. Wood scrip is an interesting alternative to wooden nickels, and contains much more information, thanks to the size. They appear to have been silk-screened. I do not know of any reference books pertaining to wooden scrip, but would one day enjoy seeing one. Apparently someone named John B. Rogers of Fostoria, Ohio produced them and held a copyright as of 1938. Early examples were born out of the 1933 Bank Holiday when cash was scarce, and emergency scrip in the form of clamshells and other medium was used. Typical examples of 1938-1980 wood script can be found for $1 and up. Happy hunting!
