No Beardo should go around without being able to prove the legitimacy of his beard: get your Beard Token here.
In 1705, Emperor Peter the Great of Russia outlawed beards and instituted a beard tax in his attempt to emulate European styles and modernize
Those who paid the tax were required to carry a “beard token”. This was a
copper or silver token with a Russian Eagle on one side and on the other, the lower
part of a face with nose, mouth, whiskers, and beard. It was inscribed with two
phrases: “the beard tax has been taken” and “the beard is a useless burden”.
