A rare circus token. Thayer & Noyes travelled in Ontario
in the late 1860's, but were a United States circus out of Girard, PA. The obverse is yellow cardboard with black print stating "Thayer & Noyes/Great/Circus/Menagerie/Tamed animals", reverse features an 1868 United States $20 gold coin." The piece is listed in "Guide to U.S. Shell Cards 1867-1880" by Q. David Bowers as B-PA-1360. It also mentions "2 or 3 known" ... so very rare, and we expect spirited bidding.
