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.
Date: circa 1940
State of Issue: Missouri
Mintage: unknown (but fairly large)
Size: 38 mm
Other details: This token is also available in a 2-sided version, although I don’t own one. The reverse on that reads “This receipt shows that you are helping to pay for old age pensions, support public schools, care of poor insane and tubercular patients in state hospitals and relief of needy unemployed in the state of Missouri.”
Estimated Value: $2-5
