Any information on Eggleston's Grocery 15c chit?

At one point I was directed to St. Ansgar, IA...a small community in north central Iowa, 20 miles south of the Minnesota state line.

Mr. Eggleston passed away in 1954 and actually owned a cafe there, which was misidentified in the obituary.

This was confrimed by a lady from the Chamber of Commerce who actually had waitressed at the cafe prior to his passing.

Anyone have any insights into the origin of this note. Printed on thick, heavy paper..blank reverse. If this was depression era, which I suspect, 15c would have purchased a lot of gasoline.

Thanks for any insight or information.
