    Old Drum Whiskey Token

    I went down to the neighbors yard after work last night. Dug 15 more coins including a 1907 IHP. But the most interesting find was this large, half dollar size whiskey token. Has anyone ever found one of these before or know when they were issued? I've been able to find a few for sale on the internet, but no information on their time frame or history.

    Nice advertising piece, rather than token as such.

    The Calvert Distillers Corporation in NYC was founded post-Prohibition, in August 1934, as a holding company for the Calvert Distilling Company and Maryland Distillery, Inc. It was acquired by the Seagram-Distillers Corporation that year but continued to operate under the “Calvert Distillers Corporation” name until 1954 when it was merged into Seagram’s subsidiaries.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    The hole was pre-drilled; the token was perhaps attached to each bottle as an advertising token.

    So is this KY whiskey? Unusual that it say blended whiskey instead of Bourbon. Maybe Canadian? Gary
