    My first Saloon Token

    I love my saloon token a New Orleans token from the French Quarter on Royal St off Bourbon St. I found it in the grass of the oldest church in Covington, which is across Lake Ponchatrain from New Orleans. I just know they had to be a story there. Lol

    (New Orleans, Louisiana), Ziegler Saloon, 106 – 114 Royal St., E.W. Peters, Prop. // 10. Copper nickel, 27mm, vf detail with some corrosion on both sides, Crawford & Farber 6293Z/3-10a, R-10.
    The catalog states that all the known Z/3-10 examples have a V counterstamp on the obverse – this one does not. The Ziegler Saloon operated at 8-12 Royal Street from 1875 – 1895 when it became Huff’s Saloon. Street numbers were changed in New Orleans in 1894 so this token was struck in 1894 or 1895. A rare New Orleans saloon token.

    You have inspired me now! I found a saloon token in Pueblo, Colorado a few years ago. John Sweeneys "Dewey Saloon" and I listed it last week in the token catalog online. Great find and great auction price!

    Congratulations Icewing. I received one of those a couple years ago and it is quite an honor. It's nice to be recognized for a great find.

    Thought I saw something about a Delmonico Saloon token in the most recent issue of Western and Eastern Treasures. Might be worth looking into. Nice finds!

    Yes sir! Saloon tokens, especially Texas saloon tokens, are a hot commodity as you have found out. Congratulations on a great find!
    If you get a depth reading of four inches and you've dug down two feet and widened your hole several times and still get a signal, GIVE UP!

    I love old token coins. Saloons being some of my favorite. You have a very nice old rare token here. Love the other relics too. Nice hunting.
    Proverbs 3:5-6

    Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
    In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
