Gordon WrubelQuickfinder Notes: The letters in the motto "In God We Trust" are very weak, in fact, "ghostlike". In the later stages of usage, the letters blur to the point they are virtually unreadable. The Light Motto (Type of 1932) variety is about three times scarcer than the standard Medium Motto (Type of 1935) variety.
