Gay Nineties "Good For" Token - The trade check, or "good for" started coming into its own in the 1866-1889 period, but the 1890-1900 period saw issues of trade checks increase dramatically. The commercial introduction of aluminum to token manufacture about 1891 accelerated an already swelling tide of trade checks.
