St. Peter, Minnesota Owney tag
Owney received this identification token from W.F. Coffin of St. Peter, Minnesota. The individual who presented this tag to Owney may have been Wilbur F. Coffin, a postal clerk. The token was probably created on the engraved date of 1880, at least eight years before Owney began making his journeys. It is not known when Owney was in St. Peter, but he probably arrived in town on the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad.
