Brief Insight into Put and Take
Put & Take tops were very popular from the 19th century to the end of the 1940’s. They could be easily carried in the pocket and used anytime in a bar or home for an quick gambling session. Each player would contribute chips, coins or currency to a pot, they would then take turns spinning the top. There has been many variants of put and take spinners made throughout history; including ones with six sides, eight sides, ten sides and even 12; they come in single level and bi-level with the upper level showing if you won or lost, the bottom tier would tell you how much; the race horse tops, the bottom tier would indicate which horse won, and the upper tier would give the odds.
