Sec. 16-7. Same—Transactions to be numbered; articles to be tagged with recorded number.

The record of each transaction written in the register of purchases by all pawnbrokers, junk or secondhand dealers must be numbered and a tag corresponding to such number must be firmly attached to the articles purchased or pawned. If the purchase by a pawnbroker, junk or secondhand dealer consists of several different articles, when the same are distributed to various parts of the place of business for sale, each article shall bear the number corresponding to that in the register, except in the case of junk.
