I love those non-sport trading cards you post sometimes. Very fascinating pieces of history.

Casino tokens aren't in my collecting wheelhouse. But circulation cameos are, and that's what made this guy stand out. Hotel San Remo, Seven Dollar. I do not know if these command any premium, but I am happy to have it.

thisistheshow, there is a collector niche for casino "strikes", yes absolutely.
I don't know a lot about it but certainly some are better than others.

1933 Wolfville Western Days Bronze One Bit Token



This One Bit Token ( a so-called dollar type token ) has been on eBay for well over a year it seems.
I tried to get it for less many months ago and was denied. Today I tried again and got a better deal.
I find it interesting for several reasons. First of all, I already have the related So-Called Dollar - Hibler and Kappen 1933 AZ HK-689.

1933 Wolfville Western Days Bronze So-Called Dollar


which I posted about way back here on Apr 12th 2018 click this link.

Also, it is in equal condition and it is the only one I have ever seen in the past year.
I cannot find another anywhere.

There are always a few of the so called dollars available but this little one bit token might be the only one we'll ever see for a long time.


From what I gather, there was a celebration in Tucson Arizona commemorating the old Western Days in 1933.
There was a rodeo and a jamboree and apparently some gambling with these so-called dollars.

From a newspaper clipping April 17, 1965
in the Tucson Daily Citizen from Tucson, Arizona


I'm still not sure but I think that the town of Wolfville is actually a fictitious place from the books by Alfred Henry Lewis (1855-1914) He published a trio of books.

Wolfville (1897)
Wolfville Days (1902)
and
Wolfville Nights (1902)



My favorite album!
