SHIM cards? Never heard of them, but they look pretty cool.

The dealer carrying this item was at the Redwood Empire Coin Show today, and had it in one of his display cases. I got to examine it in hand! Cool item. Not a peg leg.

Apparently 4 such shim cards are known. They carry other denominations. IIRC, Fred Weinberg as a card as well. This may be the only Ike card.
