Chinese bamboo wooden tally token - emergency money!

In China during the late 1800s there was a shortage of official government currency and so private banks and businesses began to issue their own form of money.  Some provinces in east China issued currency made from bamboo which was called bamboo tallies or tokens.  The use of bamboo tallies as currency continued on well into the 1900s.
