Oldham County Photos


Many communities in Texas used Texas merchant and saloon  tokens as a medium of exchange during the 1870's and 1880's. The J. M. Brunswick and Balk Company produced many of these tokens. Tascosa is the only known community in Oldham County that used these tokens. David Durocher has submitted this image of a rare 1874 token used exclusively in Tascosa.

To see other tokens used through out Texas please visit David's web site at Texas Trade Tokens
