On this page I will show several encased where paper is involved. Involved how? You ask? Well, I'll answer that with each piece I show.

This is interesting on several levels. First, the encased is hung on a card. The card reads:
LUCKY INDIAN HEAD PENNY KEY CHAIN. Across the bottom of the card is
A Collectors Item and in tiny text
Made in U.S.A. The card has a stylized horseshoe and a four-leaf clover printed on it. Second, the reverse is interesting. What makes it interesting is the history of the Indian Head cent. The plastic horseshoe is red and contains a 1903 Indian Head cent. It has a keychain attached.

1938 encased cent. Reverse reads:

The encased cent from the Thornton & Minor birthday card is full red. The obverse has tape residue. The reverse is MS 65 or better and full red. The tape no longer holds the encased cent in place and is yellowed and dry. I am reluctant to place a new piece of tape on the coin/card. I am storing it in a regular letter envelope. The best I can ascertain the Thornton & Minor Clinic no longer exists.
