Saloon token, Good For 10¢ In Trade, N.H. Rivera's Saloon, Newhall Cal., circa 1890s, presumed unique (meaning it is believed that this example is the only one in existence today). Either zinc or more likely aluminum.

Borrowed from the owner in June 2006 for the purpose of photographing it. This is the only known type of token for Nick Rivera's Saloon.

Nicanor H. "Nick" Rivera ran a combination saloon-barber shop on the west side Railroad Avenue, roughly mid-block between Market and 8th streets, just south of Mike Powell's Palace Saloon, which was later called the Oil Exchange. See this image for orientation. See this image for orientation.
