    Token or Gaming?

    Dug several years ago and never could find anything about it. Looks like a token but has 21 on it, which makes me think gaming item. Dug in Paris, Tx

    Does this token have an obverse side or is it blank?

    Where did you find it?

    I was able to find this during a quick research

    Do a cross reference of the companies Voorheis worked for with a Jacobi reference see if they worked together at any of the companies.

    There is some cool information about some of the mining operations Voorheis worked at. Also note that some of the sites for the mining references did not spell his name correctly. The information I attached is from an early 1900s reference guide of who’s who in the corporate world.

    Good Luck
