    I think we are reading in backwards.
    Could it be "BOX30"?
    And I can almost see "SIDES"
    On the other side. Maybe it is from a restaurant named Cotton Mill.
    There was a Cotton Mill in South Boston,VA. Near by.

    Not sure Why COTTON MILLS Would be Correct Yet BOX 30 Would be Backwords ?

    But you May be Right

    Backwards maybe the wrong description, upside down maybe more correct.

    aah ! okeedoke I see it now

    I wonder now If the Bottom Word is Store.

    Meaning Good for 3 Points at the Store

    Maybe Company Store Points ?
    Which would Be a Pickers Token.
    Same as Miners Script
