McWhorter's Owney tag
Owney received this trade check token from an establishment called McWhorter’s. The token notes that McWhorter’s was located at “221 4th Ave.,” but there is no additional information to indicate in which town it was located. The token was “good for one drink” or “10 cents” to the recipient. Trade checks such as this were used much like coupons are today, offered by merchants as a lure to increase customers’ purchases.
