19 9 Hire tag, undated

Provenance of item as told to Sarah Quigley by J. Herman Blake: The hire tag was given to Blake by a retired proessor from Iowa State University (ISU) when Blake was teaching at ISU. The professor had moved to the western United States and found the tag at a flea market. He met Blake while visiting family in Ames and gave the tag to Blake. Blake knew nothing of the origin of the tag and has never attempted to have it authenticated.
