Mecca Temple Debenture

 

The above debenture was issued in 1917 by Mecca Shrine Temple to raise money to build a new Temple in NYC.  As it turned out it became an excellent investment for anyone who purchased them, as the coupons were redeemable at a 5% interest rate during the entire 1930's depression.  This certificate was in the possession of a gentleman who had 100 of them that had belonged to his grandfather!  At this writing the grandson was pursuing the current value of them!
