    I Doubt it's 3 Sides of Beef.

    If it is, Again, unless It was Like a Pickers Token.
    Given to a Farmer Or Butcher,
    When he Delivered 3 Sides of Beef to the Store or Butcher
    as a Promissory Note

    The bottom of the other side looks like it might say "BOX & OF" up side down

    Your on to something,
    Under the magnifying glass I can see the top end of a "K" two letters after the O, so "BOX&O_K". Still don't make sense to me.

    Got a little more from it.
    It reads Cotton Mill"S".
    So I'm thinking it is the name of the company written around the edge.
    "BOXB_K COTTON MILLS"
    The "&" sign must be a "B".

    I believe it to say "Roxboro Cotton Mills."
    Still not sure what "3 sides" means.
    There was a mill in Roxboro North Carolina about 45 minutes from area I found it.
    Started 1899.

    I wonder if This may Be a Hint.

    Perhaps Something Like a Chair Was Made.
    that Would have Been requested to have 3 Sides Made of Cotton.

    Not sure though if Cotton Mills Made things,
    Out of Cotton

    thanks Jeff, you maybe on to something.
    The only thing that made sence to me was 3 sides to a story. One persons side, the second persons side and the truth being the third side. The property I found it on, belonged to a judge. He would have liked that one, and maybe why he held on to it. Your find makes more sence. This will be the first item I am sending to a museum. I called the Person County Museum, NC looking for information on it and they do not have anything like it in their area on the Roxboro Cotton Mills. So I will be donating it to them.
