The brass check tags (small round metal discs) were issued to miners. The miner would leave a tag behind whenever they signed out company equipment; they left a tag behind whenever they entered a mine shaft, so someone would know who was in the mine. The miner could provide a tag to his wife, so she could pick up the miner's paycheck. These tags were used by William Fritz who was a concreter and timberman at the Cornwall Mines from 1950-1972.
