Exclusive Dreyfuss Hudson Coin – Yours For Just $9.99!

Now you can own an authentic U.S. Half-Dollar enhanced by Mystic with an image of one of the most famous trains in American history – the Dreyfuss Hudson.  For over 200 years, trains have captured our imaginations while revolutionizing the transportation industry.  For just $9.99, this coin will give you a glimpse of one train's history.  It's fun to imagine who traveled on the Dreyfuss Hudson, where they were going, and why... In 1902, a medicine salesman turned passenger agent named George Henry Daniels introduced the 20th Century Limited express passenger train.  Operated by the New York Central Railroad, it featured a barber shop and secretarial services and could make the trip from New York City to Chicago in 20 hours.  By 1928, it was believed to be the most profitable train in the world, earning some $10 million that year alone. By the 1930s, the New York Central Railroad wanted newer trains designed in the Art Deco style and hired industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss.  His streamlined design debuted in 1938 and featured blue and gray hues, the colors of the New York Central.  This design is one of the most famous ever for American passenger trains. In addition to the new look, the train averaged 60 miles per hour, making the New York to Chicago trip in 16 hours.  It was also known for its "spectacularly understated...  exclusivity and sophistication."  Passengers entered and exited the train on plus red carpet that was specially designed for the train.  In fact, "getting the red carpet treatment" became a common phrase, thanks to this practice.  Along with the luxury, the Hudson also carried an East Division Railway Post Office.  The Dreyfuss Hudson has been rated "the world's ultimate passenger conveyance – at least on the ground."
