Re: Simonia card? #yiddish #translation

As far as I can see the letters comprise a word that would be pronounced "simoine" [see-moy-ne]. Questions that can help: Perhaps it derives from an English word? An American name for some kind of a bank card? Wikipedia says that credit cards were "born" in the 1920s. Or perhaps there was a department store by a similar name? A calling card?
