MPC's

How many of you still had some when you got back. I found two of them. Any of you had to go through the process of exchanging them, and what did you spend them on? Also, there were a few series during that time and they were in order. They all started with 6 and then other numbers that were not in sequence.

There were 11 issued series of MPC starting with Series 461 in 1946. There were also two unissued series 691 and 701.

 

Series 641, 661, 681 and 692 were issued in Vietnam.

They tried to keep it quiet and change them out is as quick as they could. Boy the Vietnamese got angry at us when they got caught with the worthless outdated ones.

Yes, that was something. Some just stayed low until things settled down.

I have an MP3 file of a C-Day announcement from AFVN but it is too large to post and I could not compress it small enough.

 

Attached is an MPC reminder from AFVN.

 

 

Hi

That's good to know. I will check that out.

Okay, So what I remember are that the amounts were $1, $5, $10 and $20, and the others were 5, 10, 25 and 50 cents.

Back of the Series 681 $10.00. This stamp and signature on this note indicate it was used by the Australians.

Back of a Series 681 $.05. The astronaut is Ed White. The face and back of the fractionals have the same images.
