In my youth (which was quite a while back) I used to collect wooden nickels because I could often get them for the cost of a SASE. I don't recall how I came by this wooden dollar, but I kept it all these years for the novelty of it.

Oh ya... I have some of those.  A yearly themed wooden nickel was a very popular thing back in the late 70's and early 80's.  All kinds of variations on these.

I wonder how you went about spending it? :-D

Those weren't meant to be "cashed in".  Just a nice commemorative issue.  People have commissioned post cards, checks and business cards from wood too.  I think a thin wooden business card would be cool especially if you worked in some kind of job wood related.

How about a wooden ten dollars?  This one was produced in 1975 by Rusty Bailey, who I guess is the Queen of Wooden Money, or so it says on the note.  It is printed on one side only.

This is a set of wooden scrip issued by the Hershey Coin Club, Inc., in 1981.

Neat set! I wonder if Milton Hershey was a coin collector.
