tracing the history of \'deal toys\' from lucite to brass balls
\"Trading toys\" is a common decoration for dealer offices and compartments to commemorate the work they have done throughout their lives.
But there is a history of trading toys in addition to souvenirs.
Graham Burnett explores in Tombstone and toys, an interesting article that appears in the current Cabinet Magazine.
\"Since the emergence of the banking industry, businessmen and bankers have appreciated each other\'s tchotchkes: the silver plate in the Hansa alliance financiers, the crystal bowl exchanged by the London tycoons, burnett, a professor of science and history at Princeton University in the Gilded Age, wrote.

After the stock market crash in 1929, the Securities Law of 1933 put strict demands on advertisements that allow banks to operate.
These restrictions mean that tombstone ads become the form used by companies and banks to promote financial transactions such as initial public offerings.
At least since the end of 1960, law firms and banks have produced a Lucite tablet with a new partner class written on the tombstone advertisement.
By the end of 1960, the Bank commemorated their new partner class by embedding a partnership announcement in Lucite.
Burnett frankly admitted that the timing of the trading of toys still made him unable to understand.
Adman Don McDonald is said to have created the first Lucite trading toy in 1973 for a school friend who became an investment banker.
Aware of an opportunity, McDonald\'s resigned from its job as an advertising company to set up Don McDonald & Associates, which continues to \"create its own production facilities\" and open multiple offices overseas \", produce up to 5,000 toys a year during the year1990s.
Michael, McDonald\'s son, followed him into the industry, which is now part of Altrum honors.
Michael told Burnett that trading toys became more and more Rococo in the 1980 s.
At the beginning of the decade, Philadelphia marked the issuance of municipal bonds, with tombstone advertisements wrapped in the silhouette of the Liberty Bell, in which the famous cracks were etched by the formwork and the sand maker.
On 1983, Donald Trump finished his finances at the Trump Square memorial Atlantic City casino Harrah and designed a trading toy that looked like a huge poker chip. R. J.

There is no doubt that McDonald\'s created the first major player in the trading toy industry, but he may not have invented the form, as shown by a fascinating historical anecdote.
