Coffeyville, Kansas- Read Bros. 10c token- white metal- this token is directly related to the 1892 multiple bank robbery attempt by the Dalton Gang in Coffeyville, Kansas, as the Read Bros. store was on the same block as one of the 2 banks, and Read Bros. clerk, Lucius Baldwin thought he would be a hero and went to the hardware store and got a revolver, and met the Daltons in the alley behind the bank...where Bob Dalton shot him dead! Other townsfolk were killed during the robbery attempt as were some of the gang...NTCA members may recall my article in Talkin' Tokens on this subject a few years ago. The article was also republished with my permission in the Texas Numismatic News magazine in Jan. 2007.This is a HIGHLY desireable token due to the connection with the Dalton gang Coffeyville Raid! --------photo of dead Dalton gang is not included in auction.
