I found this luggage tag while metal detecting an old ghost town. It is my understanding thet the KP ran from Kansas City MO to Denver CO from 1863 until 1880. It was bought out by UP in 1880. The makers mark is H. Hoole N.Y. I can't find any referance material related to this tag and can't assign a value to it. Any ideas?

    ANYTHING Kansas Pacific is GOOD!!! And rare. Look up Railroad Memories on Google, and consign it in their auction, if you want to get the best price for it.
