A coaster featuring a warning poster from 1851. The poster reads,

"Caution!! Colored People one & all, You are hereby respectfully CAUTIONED and advised, to avoid conversing with the Watchmen and Police Officers. For since the recent ORDER OF THE MAYOR & ALDERMAN, they are empowered to act as KIDNAPPERS AND Slave Catchers, And they have already been actually employed in KIDNAPPING, CATCHING, AND KEEPING SLAVES. Therfore, if you value your LIBERTY, and the Welfare of the Fugitives among you, shun them in every possible manner, as so many HOUNDS on the track of the most unfortunate of your race. Keep a Sharp Look Out for KIDNAPPERS, and have TOP EYE open. APRIL 24, 1851."

The coaster has a gloss finish.
