This advertising token was collected from the Plowboy site in Shawnee County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The Plowboy site was home to the Kansa, the Potawatomi, and Euro-Americans. At various times, the site contained a farm, a trading post, and a post office with nearby military trails, Mormon routes, a railroad and the California-Oregon trail. One side of the token depicts a Union Pacific train with the words: UNION PACIFIC LUCKY PIECE. The reverse depicts the Alcoa logo with the words: A SAMPLE OF THE ALUMINUM IN THE NEW UNION PACIFIC TRAIN BUILT BY PULLMAN CAR & MFG. CORP. ALCOA ALUMINUM CO. OF AMERICA GREENDUCK CHI.

Date: 1933-1934 CE
