Stumbled across this on eBay last week and watched it up until the last few seconds, sadly being outbid, and going for much more than I was willing to shell out. Had a feeling it was going to "go". Of the last 15+ years that I've collected coins, I can say I've never seen one like this (though token-type coins have not been one of my strong areas of interest, granted I have a few).

That does look pretty cool to own, but not what I would pay either

And how much would that token be worth to NOT play a banjo tune?

Saw that. Put a bid on it for the heck of it as I occasionally pick up weird 19th century tokens from places like old Cathouses and the like. Dropped out after 15$.

To add to Jim B’s comment above, I was looking for the complementary token that said “ have the banjo stop playing - $1.00”

Sirowes must have been one heck of a place.
