Jeff Awarded Best Military Collection

Jeff Awarded Best Military Collection

The Famous Stars & Stripes Collection-Four-time winner!!

Once again the choice was easy—Jeff won every single set in the MPC category. His complete collection was improved upon once again this year with several upgrades, as his weighted GPA rose from 64.48 this year to 65.80 out of a possible 67.832. Jeff’s set includes many “top pop” notes and some great rarities. While the competition was a little tougher this year as a couple of sets are beginning to challenge that of Mr. Smith’s, he continues to excel in adding to his impressive collection with more upgrades and it will be a challenge for any collector to catch up!

What are MPCs and why did the US Military issue MPCs?

Jeff Smith, President of Treasured Stocks in Pocatello, Idaho knows a great deal about building coin and currency collections. A military veteran of the US Navy, Smith recalls receiving his pay with Military Payment Certificates, fondly known as MPCs, and spending these MPCs at the base PX.

The United States military devised the MPC program immediately following WWII. In post war Europe, US dollars became very valuable due to the high inflation rates of local currencies. Hence, US servicemen stationed overseas could purchase high value items for relatively small numbers of US dollars. To overcome this problem and help stabilize foreign economies, MPCs were developed and used from the time immediately following World War II until the Vietnam War ended (1946-1973). In the opinion of many collectors, MPCs include some of the most beautiful currency notes the US has ever printed. They are paper money in cent denominations of 5, 10, 25 and 50 and dollar denominations of 1, 5, 10, and 20. The MPC program was at its peak during the Vietnam War, Jeff Smith said.

Understanding the history of each piece of currency or coin is an important value consideration. Jeff Smith knows that one great way to learn about history and military conflicts is through currency and certificates.

To create many currency collections is enormously challenging yet just as rewarding. One collection to consider is a Military Payment Certificate  (MPC) Fractional Collection which is a relatively easy  collection to put together and not that costly. The MPC Fractional notes are 5 cent, 10 cent, 25 cent, and 50 cent notes.  A complete MPC Fractional Set requires 52 notes from Series 461 through Series 692.
