Odd that they'd say an 86-P is from Denver. I suppose if it was mailed from Denver that could have been what was meant. Not sure of the value, but I imagine it would be like the Tidy House dollars.

Look at the 4 1/2 cent postage cost . Neat piece of history .

Bought this a few years ago from Todd Pollock. Paid $400 and I'm still happy I own it. 78-CC VAM 14A - not rare but...

I have never seen any of those before. Great history. I love the colors on that sugar dollar. I also don't remember the postage. That is very cool. Thanks all for showing us these.🐍 P.S.. That G&W sugar is still available.

I've bought several over the years. Here are two coins I put into these holders 8-10 years ago. They have always been stored in the same location but clearly the older American Savings holder adds more to the one. Maybe they will be killer toners one day.
