The coins are of copper, large squares or oblongs, with denominations stamped in the four corners and centers of each Approximately 100.000.000 pounds of copper valued at nearly $20,000.000 weye used in issuing this odd money. It was known in Sweden as "plat" (pronounced Plaut). It was similar to the German plat- temetals that were cast,, beaten or rolled into so-called "sheets- money." Charle'5 XII (1697-1718) made some of the plate pieces from gun metal. Scarcity of silver resulted in striking the blanket sizo coin." Government officials alsr> felt, them would be a profit in the venture, while no gain was realized from issuing small denomination copper coins. Issuance of the plate money began at Ovesta, Province of Dalecarlia, where a 10-daler piece was made for the one and only time. No wonder it was not continued— it measured 27 1-2 by 12 inches and weighed 40 (pounds! Later denominations were one, two, three, four, five, isix, seven and eight daler coins and one half-daler piece was struck. Corners or ends of the coins often were clipped so that they would not be too heavy. In the beginning, the .plate money was equal in value to silver coins of like denominations, but later it depreciated. Some authorities regarded them as mere weights which could be exchanged for goods but there is no question but that they passed from hand to hand as money. Although not regarded highly at the time, a few hoarded away might have been as valuable ai~ a small piece of business property today. .Even the most common varieties of smaller denominations sell for $15 to $25 and many varieties sell for 10 to 20 times those figures, since some are quite rare. Many collectors of the United States and other countries have one or more pieces in their odd and curious money collections. Funerals Miss Jane Stratton Funeral services for Miss Jane E. Stratton, 20 Church street, a Naugatuck resident for many years, who died Wednesday, at St. Mary's hospital after a brief illness, were held this morning at 8:30 o'clock from the Buckmiller Funeral Home, 22 Park place.
