Tre cents—questo è datato 1938 sono stati necessari per acquistare una copia nei giorni feriali di The New York Times (a New York City) nel maggio del 1938. (Copie localmente vendute del NYT erano andato da due cents a tre all'inizio del mese).

Transatlantico di Italia veloce Rex era indietro nelle notizie. Lei era stata utilizzata nel wrestling internecine fra l'US Navy e l'US Army e l'US Army Air Corps.

 

Tre versioni di prime del B-17 Flying Fortress sono state caricate con i giornalisti sia stampa e radio e inviato a intercettare il Rex in mare—che hanno fatto, mentre il rivestimento era ancora circa 600+ miglia da New York. Il punto è stato fatto, ma la discussione è proseguita, naturalmente.

 

E non c'era più la notizia nel 1938: rising guerra-talk all'estero, e a casa la depressione sembrava di fare un ritorno. Produzione di cent era in costante aumento dal ‘34, ma tuffato acutamente nel 1938. Il totale di tre-zecca di questi pezzi di 1-cent era meno della metà di quello che era stato l'anno precedente.

Three cents—this one is dated 1938—were needed to buy a weekday copy of The New York Times (in NYC) in May 1938. (Locally sold copies of the NYT had gone from two cents to three at the beginning of the month.)

Italy’s fast ocean liner Rex was back in the news. She had been used in the internecine wrestling between the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Army and the U.S. Army Air Corps.

 

 Three early versions of the B-17 Flying Fortress were loaded with reporters both print and radio, and sent to intercept the Rex at sea—which they did, while the liner was still some 600+ miles from New York. The point was made, but the discussion continued, of course.

 

And there was more in the news in 1938: rising war-talk abroad, and at home the Depression seemed to be making a comeback. Cent production had been rising steadily since ’34, but dipped sharply in 1938. The three-mint total of these 1-cent pieces was less than half of what it had been the previous year.
