I received these fantastic photos from Bob G. as a follow-up to yesterday’s post and they came with the following.
Thanks Bob !!!
Attached is Decatur Mudgett token from his saloon.
He is listed as ‘saloon keeper’ in the 1900 census.
(I like collecting tokens, a pretty obscure bit of history).
I would love to get more history on use of the tokens. Were they given away, used instead of credit or a bar tab…? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
