Fortune Magazine Cover for Feb. 1932

America 1932

Illustration of a bird’s eye view of industrial strength through the smokestack of a factory. Fortune during the last great depression at $1.00 an issue was no small fortune. As a silver dollar was
90% silver in those days even at today’s scrap value a 1932 silver dollar will net you 10 Federal Reserve dollars.
My, my, my, what have they done to the currency? Oh I forgot, we only have currency, not money (just a snarky swipe at the Federal Reserve private corporation) I can’t resist….

The cover is hinged to a double mat which looks as if this was done many years ago.
Suitable for framing.
