Hotel Room Key Tokens

Yellowstone Hotel Owney tag

Description:

Owney’s travels may have taken him to Yellowstone National Park, but as far as is known by his tokens, this may be as close as he got to that famous area. He probably received this hotel key token while visiting the Yellowstone Hotel in Glendive, Montana. The town is located near the border of Montana and North Dakota. The town was a stop along the Northern Pacific Railroad during Owney’s lifetime. The token itself was manufactured by “NW Stamp Works,” a northwest company that also manufactured police badges, rubber stamps for city offices, date stamps, and dog license tokens.
