US > New York: good luck/fund raising token for Hebrew Kindergarten & Infants Home, circa. 1920s-30s; size: 32.75mm; weight: 7.2g. Obverse depicts image of child within heart-shaped frame of olive branches and legend "Hebrew Kindergarten & Infants Home | 35 & 37 Montgomery St. N.Y.C./Central & Plainview Aves. Far Rockaway". On reverse legend within hear-shaped frame of olive branches "Have a Heart Help the Orphans and G-d Will Help You" with slogan "Good Luck Coin" below. This institution opened in 1905 and functions to this day. Three different fundraising tokens were issued, all containing the address of the day school on Montgomery Street as well as the addresses of the orphanage on Plainview Avenue and Central Avenue, in Far Rockaway. The most common of the three tokens was issued in connection with the August 1923 fund drive for the completion of that building, and this token was probably issued at a later date in connection with another fund drive.
