Tram Via de La Union Token - Chile or Uruguay ?
« on: August 16, 2019, 02:27:34 AM »
I have seen several tokens listed on eBay which read “Tram Via de La Union” listed by different sellers which are described as Uruguay Tram tokens, however the Smith 1967 book attributes those tokens to La Union, Chile.

Any insight would be appreciated.

There are now two volumes,

Catalogue of World Horsecar, Horseomnibus, Streetcar, and Bus Transportation tokens; Ken Smith and Kirk Smith 1990.

Catalogue of World Ferry, Ship, and Canal Transportation tokens and Passes;  Ken Smith and Kirk Smith 1981.

Ken Smith passed away before his expected Railway volume.

Thanks, Malcolm

I actually have all three books - The two you mentioned plus the Catalogue of World Transportation Tokens and Passes, except North America - I just need to find the horsecar book.
