Corning Sticker Description
This sticker has a silver background with and alternates between red and silver lettering. Written on the sticker are the words “PAYDAY DOLLAR Paid by CORNING NEW CAR DEALERS BUY AT HOME”.
This coin was a payday dollar given to employees of the Corning Dealership. The idea with these coins was that employees would take these coins and spend them in the local town. Once in circulation these coins were a good way to advertise the importance of buying local. I have tried to track down the exact dealership, but to date I have not been able to. There are several Corning dealerships in Corning California, but there are also other towns named Corning in New York, Wisconsin, and Kansas just to name a few. Most likely this coin is either from Corning New York or Corning California. My gut feeling is that this stickered dollar is from California.
This coin is the only one like it that I have seen. There are most likely more out there, so if you see one it might be worth picking up.
