Description
This Y. M. K. storecard was made in Russia in 1824, during the reign of Alexander I, who ruled Russia from 1801-1825. Storecards were used as a form of payment employers would use to pay their workers. An employer would give the storecard token to their workers and the token could then be redeemed at any of the employer’s establishments. These were personal to specific employers.
