Many banks in post-Renaissance Europe issued small, porcelain "borrower's tiles" to their creditworthy customers. Like credit cards, these tiles were imprinted with the owner's name, his credit limit, and the name of the bank. Each time the customer wanted to borrow money, he had to present the tile to the bank teller, who would compare the imprinted credit limit with how much the customer had already borrowed.
Which colloquial term comes from something to do with this practice?

"For scientists and laymen alike, this week's historic ____ was the first indication of the progress made in the greatest and most secret research race of this era. Except for a few breathless tales of mysterious walled laboratories and factories whose workers were interned for the duration, scarcely a word leaked out....hidden under the official designation '___________ ________', the vast forbidden areas in Tennessee, Washington and New Mexico got top priorities not only on material but also on scientific brains and effort."
