Object Description

Round aluminum token with scalloped edge. The front shows raised lettering with ?Good For 20?" in the middle circle, while in an arc around the middle shows stamped lettering of ?J. A. Raabe" and a five pointed star at the bottom. The difference of the raised lettering versus the punched lettering suggests that the token was a blank and was customized with the punched lettering. The other side has a fully smooth surface with raised lettering in a circle showing ?Steiner E. & B.C. -11- N. 8. St. St. Louis", who is the manufacturer of this token.
