He died there in 1900.

About those trade tokens....

Good lord, the internet and Larry are simply maaah-velous!!  Who knew there are catalogs of coins online?  The one Larry showed me last night is searchable by country, state and town--and Buckman--lil ol Buckman!--has 15 possible collectable trade tokens....and a few have dates the place was in business, too.  Looks like Tony Sitzman's bar lasted the longest (of the businesses who used trade tokens)--1934 to 1966.
Check it out!
