HELLO AND WELCOME to the new website of the American Tax Token Society. As you can see, we’re off to a solid start with a lot of areas of interest, such as an original article on the history of tax token collecting by Monte Dean, which this webmaster found fascinating and hope you will, too! This is just the first of what we hope will be many such articles on this website.
WE’VE ALSO PROVIDED a number of areas for members and non-members alike, to post tokens they have for sale or a want-list of tokens they’ve been seeking for their collection. Don’t be shy about using these areas. While the posts are currently moderated, there is no limit on how often you can post. Anyone who is reading this should feel free to take advantage of these areas.
WE WILL ALSO be regularly making posts, such as this one, featuring photos and stories from our members (links to these can be found on any page, to the right of the main text). These posts are only available to our members, but they are open to everyone to read & enjoy. So, if you are a member of the A.T.T.S. and want to tell a story related to Sales Tax Tokens or would like to post a photo of a new find or acquisition, simply contact the webmaster with what you’ve written and/or your photos, and they will be uploaded in a timely manner. And, by no means do these posts need to be restricted to rare or unlisted purchases. Think of this blog as the universal story of what it means to be a collector of anything. Sometimes you simply spend a dollar on something you already have because sometimes that’s what collectors do. The story isn’t always in the object, sometimes it’s in the story itself, and we look forward to hearing yours!
