1820 recalls the passing of the Missouri bachelor tax. The tax, imposed in 1821, charged unmarried men between the ages of 21 and 50, one dollar per year. Despite a push in many states to follow suite, Missouri remains the only state to have imposed such a tax. Could this 1820 dime have been used by a Missouri bachelor to pay his tax?
