Item Description

USA Coin Book Item ID Number:

I am selling FIFTY (50), FIVE (5) Mill Arizona State Tax Commissions Tokens all seperately. The main photo, the one you clicked on, is a photo of 2 of the 50 coins. It is a close up view of 2 separate coins to show detail. One coin showing the side with the Saguaros Cacti, left, and has 'ARIZONA STATE TAX COMMISSIONS' printed on it and the second coin, right, sampling the opposite side of the coin showing a large '5' and has the following printed, 'TO MAKE CHANGE FOR CORRECT SALES TAX PAYMENT'. The other 48 coins are similar, almost exactly the same as the 2 in the main photo. You can take a look yourself in the second photo which shows all 50 coins lined up on a blank white paper in 5 rows of 10s just not as close up as the main photo. They were all at one point in a paper coin roll, uncirculated, but it was unintentionally opened and now I keep them rolled in a plastic covering as in photo #3. So you know they have been very cared for. Thank you for taking a look at my ad I hope to be doing business with you in the future and allow you to enjoy my coins just as much as I have!:)

History of Sales Tax Tokens:

Sales tax tokens were fractional cent devices used to pay sales tax on very small purchases in many American states during the years of the Great Depression. Tax tokens were created as a means for consumers to avoid being "overcharged", by having to pay a full penny tax on purchases of 5 or 10 cents. Issued by private firms, by municipalities, and by twelve state governments,
