    "F Kozla Chicago" token

    Found this today in Lake Michigan, Michigan side of the big lake. Don't find many tokens or tags out here, wondered if anyone had any info for it, nothing on preliminary googling

    Nice find! The 1900 Chicago City Directory shows Frank E. Kozla - Saloon - 6500 S. May. He is also shown that way in the 1910 Census.This type of token ("this check and 10˘ good for a 15˘ drink") was used by many Chicago saloons. It is not listed in Vacketta's IL trade tokens book (1983) nor is it on tokencatalog.com - would you be willing for me to post it on the latter?
