Default Baggage tag or fob information

I stumbled across an old railroad site, and have been finding alot of baggage tags from late 1800's to the early 1900's. Some even matching. Does anyone know where I can find more info on them? Google has been of no help thus far. Books, links, photos, etc would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
