Draft Boards and Streetcar Tokens
"GOOD FOR ONE CITY
| This token was given to my brother in May of 1943, by his
St. Louis County WWII
draft board. The Draft Board paper clipped it to instruction card for
Induction. He was to use it, if needed to report to
Jefferson Barracks for induction. Friends drove him instead.
This was in with some of my "old"
keepsakes, I thought there might be a story
in it.This token was used on the St. Louis "Big Red" Street
When you could go almost anywhere for a dime. I used tokens like
this on the Hodiamont, City Limits, Crow's Nest, Clayton, and
This is an OLD aluminum Token for the United Railways Co. St.
Louis. Token is in excellent condition -Token is
dated 1919 on front which reads "UNITED RAILWAYS CO. ST.
1919". Back reads "GOOD FOR ONE CITY FARE".
Aluminum Token is 5/8" in diameter - roughly dime sized.
Large "U" cut-out in the middle.
