Missouri Tax Token – 1 Mill on Paper

This tax token is in remarkably good shape for a paper token. I’d grade it VF30 – EF40.

The obverse has a blue-green ring around the state seal of Missouri (also printed in aqua). Thee legend around the ring is printed in black and reads “Missouri Sales Tax Receipt”. Inside the ring is the legend “Retailers One 1 Mill”. The word one and the number are interwoven so that the N is astride the numeral.

The reverse is blank.
