I just purchased this German WWI anti-American propaganda postcard depicting a chicken within the oval shape of a US Dollar. The caption below states, “The Dollar Princess.” There is nothing important on the rear side of the card. It appears that the card may have been published while the US was neutral or immediately after their declaration of war, but before the US Army committed its troops to France. In the USA “a chicken” is synonymous for coward and was wondering if this may have the same meaning in Germany or Europe, which could explain the meaning of this card. Or, am I missing the mark completely on this postcard and it may have another meaning?
