More from the Ouija board, 1973... In the '70s, before my dad, Jerry, started his advertising agency, he briefly had a coin and stamp shop. That's what a lot of this part is referring to but I don't recall what year that was and if the below is before or during the time the shop was open.

*Sometimes silver coins or so-called "art bars" commemorated an event or expressed a sentiment. Sometimes the silver coin or bar would be embellished with a bit of gold. I think this refers to one that may have depicted a scene and the phrase "No better life on earth" but I haven't been able to find such a thing.
