"I was giving a
talk about Sutro’s yesterday and an elderly lady gave me the attached “Sutro
Baths” token. She said her parents had gotten it around 1912. I have no idea
what this was little token was for. It’s made of brass, has black enamel finish,
and measures 1” in diameter. The front says Sutro Baths, the reverse is blank.
It’s not a locker room token because there’s no number anywhere. It’s probably
not script since there’s no value indicated."
