In Response To: Buhler Kansas token found in Tulsa. ()

…..Wait, wrong movie. Robert the token is listed in the “Kansas Trade Tokens” book which shows him as a general store in a 1894 Gazetteer. Here is the Buhler, Kansas section listing for W. W. Johnson & Co.:

I did find a 1904 directory listing for Buhler, Kansas and business listings showing Johnson & Co. was still in business:

Here are a couple of newspaper articles. I did not find an obituary for W. W. Johnson but his wife Helena’s obituary shows that his date of death was March 13, 1925. It is probably a safe assumption that the token will predate 1925.
