[Update: My nickname for Daily Mirror readers is "the brain trust" because they always impress me with their knowledge. Fibber, Sam and Roger believe this is from the Chicago Herald-Examiner, which dates from 1918 to 1939. I was previously unaware of this publication and I'll watch out for it in the future. Thanks, folks! ]

This curious item from the Herald Examiner promoting the “Blackface Index” has been listed on EBay. It’s hard to tell much about this coin except that it can’t be dated any earlier than 1962, when the Examiner merged with the Herald-Express.
