    How fun! Yes, of course you need one :D. So do I! If you find any, let me know :)

    Edited to add: I have a couple of Christopher Columbus tokens from that 1892 Expo and assume that is the same expo referenced on this token. Maybe you can get more information from a catalog. My tokens have reference numbers citing a work by Eglit.

    Thanks @Cucumbor for the reference. That should make it easier to track down a few.

    back in the day "toiletries" were perfumes, makeup, shaving nicnacs, etc..it wasn't what we now think of when mentioning the word "toilet"..

    Well, I don't know about all that other stuff on it, but this part seems rather obvious:
