Title

Wooden Certificate, 1949 Watauga County Centennial Celebration

Subject

Wooden Certificate, Watauga County Centennial, Stanley A. Harris, James Farthing, Northwestern Bank, Boone, Echoes of the Blue Ridge

Description

Described on its reverse as a wooden nickel, this wooden certificate was issued by Watauga Centennial, Inc., as a commemorative item in association with the Watauga County Centennial celebrations in 1949. The certificate was redeemable at local businesses and the Northwestern Bank of Boone. The value of the certificate is not entirely clear, given the use of the numerical digit "1" as its denomination in spite of the reference to the certificate as a "wooden nickel."
