There was this shop in Reno when I was a kid that took original brass pieces and dupilcated them and sold the dupilcates. These were quality copies but that's all. Several items from Goldfield were made including bedwarmers and spittoons from the Goldfield Hotel and a couple of different Brothel tokens. You see these copies sold on eBay all the time, and seldom advertised as duplicates but they are. The Adobe Concert Hall Brothel Tokens go for a dollar a two, the Spittoons and bedwarmers go for $30/$50 dollars and once in a awhile two fools get to bidding and one fool and his money are parted for much more. I can't remember much about the shop but I seem to think it was near the V&T line as in my mind I associate it with watching trains . Going to Reno / Carson City was a yearly adventure to visit my Aunt in Washoe Valley as I grew up in this little cow county (Clark) to the south!

    How would a person go about finding how old it is and if it is original?
