Seattle, Washington Owney tag

Description:

Owney received this shield-shaped identification token from Victor E. Twedell of Seattle, Washington. Twedell spent time in the late 1880s and early 1890s as a waiter in Seattle restaurants. He does not seem to have any connection to the Post Office Department and may have left Seattle in the mid 1890s for California. There is no additional information on the identification token to indicate how he met Owney, or when he gave the tag to the dog.
