(15.24 cm WIDE)

A: Cotton bag with drawstring closure with very frayed braid as drawstring; fraying appears almost tassel-like. Written on the bag in crayon are several crosses in orange color (probably a drawing of jacks) and in greens crayon "Jacks." The bag was made by Bette Chinn. B-V: Inside the bag are 21 identical metallic jacks, silver colored.

The jacks came from Bette Chinn's paternal grandfather's store in Oakland, Chinn Yuey; her granfather died in the 1930s. The jacks probably date from the 1920s.
