Civil war era token?
1 Attachment(s)
Hi, back in the day, I found this saloon token and have never had any luck identifying it or what's it worth. It was found in the western ky area with a old whites spectrum. It reads Beehive saloon good for 2 1/2 cents jas. T. Quarrels.

Very nice find!
I would guess that token to be from the 1870's to 1880's.
Just a non-scientific guess for 2-1/2 cents.:D

Do some research on Token Catalog . com to learn more

Like with all coins, condition is everything. In a quick search, nothing popped out. Tells me it wasn't really a notable saloon that say Jessie James was known to frequent for example.

In my 14 years of expertise, I would card this, and add it to a collection of tokens, as on it's own it's only worth a few bucks. But in a collection of 20 other tokens, it will indeed increase the overall value of the collection by more than just a few bucks.
