    Hi Jim, The brass coin that you speak of is called a brothel house token and you can find these coins on sale on sites like eBay. Be careful though replicas of these coins were made in the 1970’s as fun gifts to give to gentlemen.

    The tokens were based on real brothel’s tokens, but they were only sold for amusement purposes and as such they are not redeemable for the items stated on the tokens. So if you have one of these replica tokens unfortunately, it’s not good for one dollar trading of girls, tobacco or anything else.

    Even the real thing is now just good for amusement purposes only. There is one of the 1970s, railhead saloon, fantasy coin (replica) that has a buy it now option, of US$10 on eBay.

    I am sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to you.
