Camden and Amboy Railroad Owney tag
There is no information on when this tag which was originally manufactured by W. W. Wilcox of Chicago in 1879 was given to Owney. It marks his travels on the Camden and Amboy Railroad in New Jersey. The Wilcox company was a major manufacturer of railroad baggage tags and similar metal items in the late nineteenth century. At least two other Owney tags were manufactured by the company.
