    The Silk Stocking token dodge city kansas real or fake see pics

    Well I was out today & hunted an old lake bottom that has dried up and found this token. I have looked on the net but can't find anything about it other than a replica of the exact token. There is one major difference the one I have has recessed ingraving & the fake had raised lettering.
    Can anyone tell me if it is real or fake & if real how old is it & what is it worth.

    Probably a fantasy token, similar to this one:

    Every one of this sort of "token" is a modern-made fantasy. They all have incuse lettering - if you saw a photo of a "real" one, be careful as shadow effects sometimes make incused lettering look raised. See www.exonumia.com/fakes/hor.htm

    First of all I know nothing about brothels or their tokens but could these have been like some kind of early gift certificate (if it was authentic)? I could just see some trail boss or cattle owner buying a handful of these things and giving them to trail hands after a drive. I'll believe you all that this is a fake or fantasy piece but has anyone ever heard of anything like this?

    first clue is that folks back then didn't use swear words on tokens.
    Second clue is that they are all brass, all incuse, all silver dollar size
    and all have the same type faces. The folks in england who made
    them also offered a complete line of sheriffs badges and texas rangers.
    They really swamped the united states in the sixties and boomed in value during the US bicentennial in 1976. I bought hundreds of them in the sixties for a quarter apiece and sold my collection in 1976 as fantasy pieces for $12 each. The current "value" of these pieces seems to be about $2.50 each.
