My Coin Arrives!

It arrived yesterday the coin I purchased on  Ebay. It's not a real coin and there's no place I can spend it.

The general store owned by Boerner and Troutfetter in western Kansas closed in the early 20th century.

It's not often I can pick up a little bit of family history on Ebay There's more on Ebay than simply pictures and postcards.

If you've not searched for names and locations in your personal history, give it a try. While I don't know the provenance of this item, I have no reason to doubt it's what it purports to be. 

I've got a few other items I'm watching on Ebay. We'll have updates for those items I am fortunate enough to purchase.
