In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Oct 11, 2013

Thirty of our states issued Tax Tokens during the depression. 

But by the end of World War II, most of them were gone.  And there are few people alive today who know they ever existed. 

Except for us treasure hunters who dig them up, of course.

They were round with holes in the middle, they were square, they were made of compressed paper, or zinc, or aluminum, or brass or copper.  They came in many sizes and denominations, all of them worth less than a penny.

In this week's episode of In the Treasure Corner, we take a look at State Tax Tokens.
