)-- Cape Cod C Shells Inc aka C Shell Community Barter is a newly established barter community dedicated to maintaining the wealth within a community. The issuance of the first proprietary medallion of Cape Cod C Shells marks a milestone in the company’s business plan. Barter medallions are becoming more popular daily due to the efforts of the American open Currency Standard (AOCS). Merchants within the C Shell community agree to accept AOCS approved medallions in trade for goods and services. It is expected the C Shell medallion will receive high recognition within the collector arena. Medallion can be seen at LetsTradeCShells dot com.
What is a Cape Cod C Shell? It is a .999 fine copper round minted with a shell on one side and a silhouette of Cape Cod on the other. More than that, it represents the return to older ways and forms of money. Barter has existed for well over 2000 years. When a metal is selected for this "currency" it has always been copper, silver or gold. On Cape Cod it was "wampum" or small pieces of sea shells cut and polished and then made into necklaces etc.
Therefore; if sea shells worked for the early settlers of Cape Cod then C or (Currency) Shells made of copper, silver and gold should work for the current inhabitants of the Cape and surrounding area and bring us back to a more basic understanding of what constitutes living.
The history of Cape Cod C Shells: Cape Cod C Shells was started because of the need to help people prepare for what is the inevitable collapse of the US Dollar. "The question is not if, but when, will the dollar collapse," said Bob Barker, President Cape Cod C Shells Inc. Being prepared is a great way to help the US survive the economic turmoil to come.
The Indians have always been an important influence for the United States. They have one of the most powerful senses of community of any group. It was truly one for all and all for one. Their traditional form of currency was the Quahog clam shell. When cut and polished into pieces called Wampum and used in jewelry it was universally recognized in the Indian communities.
It is desirable to reference Wampum in the plan to prepare for monetary collapse. However, it was decided Sea Shells would not work out so well and the thought of C Shells or Currency Shells was born. The people at AOCS have been instrumental in the design and implementation of Cape Cod C Shells.
