Records of Ingle-Schierloh, Token Manufacturer, on Newman Portal

The Ingle-Schierloh Company, a Dayton, OH token manufacturing concern, did business with hundreds of coal mining (and other) companies in the early 20th century. Collector Billy Campbell acquired unique, old records of Ingle-Schierloh and has made these available to Newman Portal. The series consists of a main ledger, followed by 11 notebooks which arrange company correspondence alphabetically, by the city of the token-issuing company. Combined with the comprehensive token cataloging provided by the site tokencatalog.com, collectors of these pieces can now access, online, images of the tokens in addition to the correspondence related to their manufacture. This provides a heretofore unavailable end-to-end view of these numismatic objects and enables further research on the subject. The community aspect of Newman Portal allows individuals to contribute such content to a centralized repository, and Newman Portal acknowledges Billy Campbell for sharing these records with the wider numismatic community.
