    Well Jeff after I found the first one (a 1888) I just tossed it in my junk box. Then I found another one a year later (the 1883) and did some research to find out what they were. Someone told me the crown looked like the Kingdom of Hawaii crown and it possibly could be a dog tax tag. I sent pics to a collector of tags who confirmed them as such. She told me she has two and would like to buy mine for her collection. She never did tell me what she was willing to pay for them. So now they are in a display with three other tags I found in the same place, a 1941, 1946, and a 1955 (made after the illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy).
    I'll post a pic when I get the chance.

    Here are a few That I found. The two at the top are from 1926 but are consecutive numbers. They were both found in the same yard.

    free and Jeff, any idea when they came into being here in PA? What bought on the dog tax in the first place? Were they issued in just towns and cities or the country side as well?

    My lucky day, a discussion group that talks about nothing but my favorite subject. Rod you are going to be like the Maytag repair man in FL, only 5 towns are currently known that issued prior to 1900: Fernandina, Orlando, Pensacola, Tampa and Lakeland. But I would suspect that Miami, St. Pete Tallahassee and who knows where else might check in eventually.

    The Meadville 1875 is the earliest known tag from PA, 19 other towns are known to have issued prior to 1900. The state instituted licensing by counties starting in 1907 and continue to do so today.

    You are absolutely right, the oldest known tag from the U.S. is the 1861 MASS., Cincinnati checked in in 1866. The issuing of license certificates predated tags and are known from the 1840's.

    Hawaii pre-1900 tags are not common. ?They all have the same format, year of issue/crown/serial number and the oldest reported to date is the 1870. ?A 1893 is known with PG stamped in for Provisional Government and in 1895 RH for Republic of Hawaii appeared.
