These tages were for use by employees of the Sterling Smokless Coal Company. They were the primary means that a miner received credit for his work. The tags were hung on a car containing the coal. It was then weighed. The miner was payed by tonnage. Additionally, if there was an accident, the tags served as a means of identifying who was in the mine.
