: Cadillac Forums member starts own bank - issues money !!!

10-04-12, 06:43 PM
A long-standing CF member, dkozloski, of Fairbanks, AK has started his own bank and is rapidly printing currency. For the history of this endeavor, see http://www.dailyfinance.com/2012/10/03/rare-century-old-5-alaska-bill-to-be-auctioned/?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000058&

Just because the bill is 100 years old makes no difference - dkoz wears his age well. :yup:

EDIT: Notice the "District of Alaska" under the words "Five Dollars".

Hopefully it works out well for him. If his money is anything like Koz, I bet he'll run the Feds outta business!

Here's a related article from the local paper.

I gave away my Rubles and Loonies years ago.

I thought you guys used dried salmon, furs, and firewood for currency -:yup:

Heh, heh............. here on the Shore we use fish, crabs, engine parts, and firewood for currency. A little road grading, wood splitting or 5# of venison goes a long way - in payback and neighbor relations. City cave-dwellers have no idea. Couple of days ago 4 of us went up to Otto's home - old guy, creaky, 96 years old with a bedridden wife. We mowed the yard, RoundUp'd the drive and cleaned up his lawn tractor and golf cart (used to go up the road to the mailbox). He was grateful.

Don't arrive until mid-April .......... and bring oranges and grapefruit. Good for at least an oil/filter change.
