    White Sewing Machine Co. token

    It's about the size of a Morgan dollar. One side says "WHITE SEWING MACHINE CO. CLEVELAND O. USA", and in the center of that it says "THE WHITE IS SOLD EVERYWHERE".

    Other side says "THE WHITE IS KING" with a picture of the sewing machine.

    Does anybody know the date this token was made? any other info you have would be appreciated.

    I found this one earlier this summer in an area that was populated between 1900 and 1930.
    You will find one here http://tokencatalog.com/index.php under Ohio.
    Here's the one I found.

    Re: White Sewing Machine Co. token

    Here's some history on the company:

    "In 1876, Thomas H. White incorporated his business as the White Sewing Machine Co. and began manufacturing sewing machines bearing what was to become one of the most recognized names within the sewing industry."

    So that fact sets the oldest date in the range of possibilities.

    The above quote and the rest of the company's history can be found here:

    Being made of aluminum narrows the date range to after 1893.

    thanks for the replies everyone.

    Tokens are pretty neat. Maybe I shouldn't be so hesitant to dig signals that register as "screwcap".
