  1. I have a roughly 1 1/2 square tag made by the company. The co. Name is on the top over a long horizontal slot. Under that it says
    I. N. G.
    TROOP A.
    1st CAV.
    Not sure the age or usage. Pretty cool. Rounded corners and silver with the letters recessed and possibly once painted black.

  2. I have several family members who have and continue to work for CH Hanson. The company is now located in Naperville, IL.

  3. I have a coin from the Marking Device Associations 34th Convention in 1948. It has a man on the front and says “Stamp Men Have to Hustle. The back says memento by the C.H. Hanson Co. Chicago.

    My great aunts husband owned a rubber stamp co. and went to these conventions back in the day.

    I would love to know more about this coin and its value if possible.

  4. I’m writing a history of this company for a numismatic publication, and would be interested in hearing from anyone having information regarding the tokens and medals struck by them over the years.
