Popeye, Bluto, Sweet Pea, Olive Oil

In Spinach We Trust

"Popeye" comic book in Hebrew from 1917, whoops 1971.

Note the funky green cover. The Israeli economy underwent a rapid period of inflation in the late 1970's and early 1980's. The old lira became the new lira and the new lira became the shekel, which in turn became the new shekel. (got that?!)

In desperation, people turned to currency they could trust - spinach!

This comic also has a picture of the Beatles Let It Be album in orange! To purchase, contact us.
