We’ve been collecting vintage souvenir squeeze coin purses forever, so we finally got off our tails and made our own.
Each keychain comes with a real Indian head penny, a copy of the original patent, and some history of the penny:
This Indian head penny is a lucky talisman. They were made from 1859-1909.
In the era of this penny...
A newspaper was 1 cent.
5 cents could buy you a beer.
2 cents bought you a cup of coffee.
5 cents for a loaf of bread.
18 cents was a shirt maker’s day wages.
$1 got you a hotel room.
(Then later in 1925 here at Wandawega Hotel you would have paid $1.25 a night)
These are the newest addition to our 1940s deadstock Gay Products Co. Retail display for our camp commissary and swag kits for guests (the little things make us happy).
