1950 Wooden Nickel Robberies

Lt. Governor Goodwin Knight was the Grand Marshall in 1950. More than 1,500 old timers signed in for the festivities. A line-splicing contest was the special event; but, this was over-shadowed by the first of many wooden nickel robberies to come. The wooden nickels were manufactured and purchased as souvenirs or used as legal tender during the celebration.
