Casino token font from early 20th century (Oaks Club)

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for fonts similar to the text on this vintage casino token:

I don't have a specific time frame but the card club opened up in 1895. I'd estimate this chip around 1930s-50s.

It's from a card room in Emeryville, California.

Thanks in advance!

Well, it’s almost certainly hand-drawn, so no font will be exactly “right”.

I'm just on the hunt for something similar. As similar as possible, ideally! Appreciate it's likely hand drawn.  🙂
