1900 Needles Ca. Colorado Riv Mojave Desert Anderson & Topp Drink Token, Scarce For Sale

1900 Needles Ca. Colorado Riv Mojave Desert Anderson & Topp Drink Token, Scarce

You are offerding on a VERY COLLECTIBLE AND SCARCE (TOUGH TO FIND OLD TOKENS FROM THIS DESERT TOWN)old "good for"trade token once as "GOOD FOR ONE DRINK" used at a business which was simply referred to as "ANDERSON & TOPP" (RAN A SALOON)business once located in old thirsty desert town NEEDLES, California.

It is tough to find old tokens from NEEDLES...just a tougher town, I bought a little collection of them, and will be selling them on . The town of Needles is located in far Eastern San Bernardino county, on the famed Colorado River. Needles was founded in 1883, and not too far from famed "Fort Mohave" on the Colorado. Town is located east of Essex California and not too far from the Mojave Valley, Fort Mohave Az, Bullhead City, Lake Havasu City, Laughlin Nevada region.

The old town of NEEDLES is a hot town in the summer, and is known for the proliferation of SALOONS, BARS and LIQUOR related businesses...it was a thirsty historic mojave desert town....with lots of railroad workers....so it seems most tokens are "liquor" related...and this is no exception :)

This is beautiful token, and with phrase 'GOOD FOR ONE DRINK"...obvious that proprietors "ANDERSON & TOPP" ran a saloon / drinkingestablishment...so anybody in old downtown Needles back in the 1900s would have known where this business was....and what Anderson and Topp did for a living :)

If you look in the original California token book (issued 1976, Kappen) this token is listed under the town of "NEEDLES" as catalog K-6. This is a very attractive token, and one you seldom see available.

Trade token is brass, round, about 21mm in diameter,and it displays nicely.(please see pictures in gallery) This token has not been cleaned...if it was a coin I would grade it VF.

Gallery pictures should show you all you need to know.

While manyold California tradetokens can be in "dug" condition, this is a very decent "problem free" token.

Attractive and tough to find old"good for" trade token once used at the "ANDERSON & TOPP (used at their Saloon, Bar)" business , located in the historic old thirsty downtown of NEEDLES, California.
