A decent chunk of change back in the day of the Indian head penny - That would be around $400 today

I wonder if they took CHECKS, as it clearly states they're a CASH store.

Interesting - Rand COMMA McNally & Co. I wonder when they lost the comma? Or maybe it's a slip of the pen, since the Rand McNally site doesn't mention any other names?
