McDonald's dollar
« on: March 03, 2020, 11:47:04 PM »
From the Field Day:

McDonald's offers. A Dutch imitation dollar note dating from 1997, advertising for a free cup of coffee if you order a donut, or a free soft drink with your Country Potatoes. The reverse of the note depicts said cup and drink with the text: "The Great Seal of the United States". Amen.

I suspected the "serial number" to be a date, but the offer was valid in 1997, not 1989. Could Lisa de Vos  - if I read the right signature correctly - be the woman in the centre of the coupon?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Karin de Vries is a spy in Robert Ludlum's The apocalypse watch. There may be a microchip in the eyes of the portrait. Big Hamburger is watching what you EAT! :)
