Complete Eight-Piece (1935) Alaska Bingle Set, AU58 to MS62 NGC. Gould-Bressett 4 through 11. Dust Bowl farmers lost their crops during the Great Depression, and some were relocated by the Department of Agriculture to Matanuska Valley, Alaska. The new arrivals received Alaska Rural Rehabilitation Corporation tokens, which could be redeemed in government-run stores. This set contains all eight "bingle" denominations, and is housed in two large-sized NGC holders, one for the cent though half dollar, and one for the dollar through ten dollar. The pieces are lightly marked but problem-free. The set includes: cent AU58; five cent MS62; ten cent MS61; 25 cent MS61; 50 cent MS61; one dollar MS60; five dollar MS62; and ten dollar MS62. From The Poulos Family Collection, Part II.
