Green telephone card with silver lettering reading "HOLOGRAMME VALUCARD ZEAG SYSTEMS AG, Place de Cornavin 1201 Geneve PARKOMATIC AG. ZUERICH; also shows the phone company's logo and an arrow indicating the direction the card should be put in a phone. There really is no holographic effect; it may be considered `holographic' in the telephone system that read the card's units may have employed some type of holographic system.

Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
