June sure has been a great month for detecting. This token is not in the books. When I went to look it up in the local directories yesterday I was surprised not to see it. I looked them over twice. I'm guessing the buisness set up before the fire and never had time to get registered, or else was doing buisness illegally. I sure like that it has the Myers Ave on it. This was in the red light district in Cripple Creek. On the same block was the famous Old Homestead House where Pearl Devere set up buisness. If anyone is good with newspaper searches maybe they could see if there is anything. " The Tango 311 Myers Ave Cripple Creek". Cripple Creek has an incredible amount of tokens associated with it but I think this one is pretty rare!!! Also, I found this what's it, if you have any ideas??? Happy Hunting!!!

What may make it rare is the misspelling of the street name: Meyers vs Myers. (unless there was another street named Meyers; unlikely).

The casinos have grown in the last few years. They are getting uglier. They ripped down another historic building for a hotel. The history is incredible!!!
