    Whether you think you can or think you can't, either way you are right.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Boone Mill Supply Co., Inc. (Boone Mill, Virginia) is noted below as being chartered on April 16, 1918.

    The post office and community name was changed to "Boone Mill" in 1892 and to "Boones Mill" in the 1950's.

    There is a Virginia trade token book by David Schenkman, but I don't have a copy to see what it says (if anything) about this one. The book is tough to get.

    I have a copy of the Virginia token book and this token is listed. It says that this was a general store during the early 1900s. In the 1930s they were canners of tomatoes and green beans. The tokens were probably used during this period. It has a catalog value of $3-5 but the book was published in 1980 so I'm sure it is worth more today.
