    Is there any value to old tax tokens?

    I was under the impression that they aren't particularly valuable, but I saw a couple for sale at a junk shop for 8 bucks each. I thought they were worth under a dollar a piece so I'm guessing they just hope someone doesn't know that and will pay too much, or has the value gone up for some reason? Here's a list of the ones I have :


    Louisiana..
    3 luxury tax 5 mill made of brass I think
    2 welfare tax 5 mill also brass
    14 public welfare 1 mill
    13 luxury 1 mill

    2 Mississippi 1 mill sales tax
    2 Alabama 1 mill luxury tax
    1 Alabama 1 mill sales tax

    You are right - they aren't particularly valuable. Sellers generally don't know the value of stuff outside their area of expertise and often pull a figure out of the air. Then they wonder why sales are slow.

    Schimmel's Tax Tokens book is fairly dated (2nd edition is 1980), but if you are interested in that area, locate a copy. There are differences between the most common and the rare, but the highest-valued example in the book is $9.

    Thanks John, that's what I figured.

    They aren't worth much, but they are fun to find and collect...

    To my thinking the best as a class are the illinois tokens that
    list a town name. Like anything else some are easier to find than others.
    According to the price guides the most expensive is one of the new mexico varieties. Some folks like the cardboard mill tokens that were blank on one side and the merchants would print their names on them. Don't know the
    value but they would appeal to regular tokens collectors, town collectors and wooden money collectors. siegfried schlagrule
