Arnold Numismatic Company 1909 Post Card

This item is a fascinating bit of Philatelic and Numismatic history. The Arnold Numismatic Company is asking for a price quote from a printer in Belvedere, IL for 1000 ea. of the two labels on the reverse of the card. I also found the price list to be of  particular interest having collected coins in my past. The quoted prices for a "3 dollar gold piece" at $4.50 or for 25 "large U.S. Cents" for $1.00 seem almost unbelievable given today's inflated prices. (Scroll down for back of card) The Flag cancel is also of interest - Elmwood Station was a sub-station of the main Providence Post Office and one of the harder to find cancels.
