Three brass poker chips stamped "Elks Hall, Hoboken," of 3 different values, no date, circa 1900-1950. Stamped brass, each denomination of different shape and design.
$1.00 [one dollar]: rectangular with rounded corners, 1-1/16" high x 1-1/2" wide.
25 [twenty-five] cents: 1-1/8" diameter
5 [five] cents: circa 1-1/32" hexagonal
The use of the term "Hall" rather than Lodge or Club probably dates this nearer 1900 than later. Currently: Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, Lodge No. 74, 1005 Washington St., Hoboken.
