These stickered dollars are one of the most common dollars that can be found. The sticker contains the common banner with the words “Souvenir of Calico Ghost Town”. This is a coin that most every stickered dollar collector will have in their collection. When purchasing this coin make sure the sticker is in excellent condition.
During the late 1880s the town of Calico was surrounded by more than 500 silver mines and produced over $20 million in silver ore. Town was abandoned after the price of silver plummeted and Calico became a ghost town. During the 1950s the deserted town was purchased and restored by Walter Knott. Calico Ghost town is still open and is located in California.
These stickered dollars were sold in the gift shop as a souvenir.
