GOVERNMENT SOCIAL SECURITY NO. 099-09-7719 HARRY INDEN" and the very base reads "BUSCHS JEWELERS". The social security card comes along with Inden's 1930's Bethlehem Steel Signature ID Card. The ID card reads: "BETHLEHEM STEEL COMPANY (INCORPORATED) (ABC Checks and this card have the same watermark) SIGNATURE IDENTIFICATION CARD This card is as issued to identify employee". The top left corner shows an ABC "INSURED SYSTEM" trademark. The card was issued to "Harry Inden EE272" and is signed by Harry and witness. The very bottom of the Signature ID card reads: "GENUINE ONLY IF WATERMARKED ABC SYSTEM"
