BERMANIAN HORSECART TOKEN



Who was Gretta? One of the most respected and beloved horses in Bermania, that's who. Schmuel & Gretta operated a horsecart for hire in the 1930s & 1940s. It was Gretta & Schmuel who would meet Howard Hughes when he'd arrive on the Danube, and bring him to meetings at Castle Bermansk.
Schmuel was a burly man with a large black beard. He would give a deep laugh from the seat of his horse cart and say, "Schmuel's Horse cart at your service. Need a hand up?" Gretta was a gentle chestnut mare.
These tokens were good for one fare "anywhere in the kingdom." Schmuel's grandson, found a tightly sealed keg of them, shiny as the day they were made.


Almost the size of a US half dollar.
