    Some Help on a Token Please

    I found a token today. It is a little smaller than a half dollar. It has Good for 5 cents In The Bar on one side and TOMPKINS BROS. BRIS Maybe Bristol, Tenn. on the other side. Anyone knows anything about this token? Thanks Alabear

    The Copeland Tennessee token book doesn't list anything like that, but of course "new listings" show up often in the token arena. It sounds like it may be damaged, but a good, close-up photo may help with the identification.

    and a Bristow in IA, OK
    Hope this helps with your ID!
