    Miami, OK 25c Aircraft Tavern Trade Tokens -INFO PLEASE !!

    Found these two tokens in a box of stuff from an auction. Would appreciate any info including year, number made, value, etc....Im sure someone out there has them listed in a book somewhere. I will be posting on our favorite auction site as soon as I get some info....I would have passed them by, but someone already offered me $20 for the pair....made me a little inquisitive. OH...also, should these be cleaned in any way ?? Or just leave them ??
    Thanks All,
    Brad

    I have two Oklahoma token references, but your token was only listed in one of them, R.W. Chadwick's "Oklahoma Exonumia, A Catalog of Monetary Substitutes" (2007). I will assume that your photo shows the obverse of one token, and the reverse of the other, which, since they are the same size, tells me that they are both the 25c variety. A 5c variety was also issued, but it was only 21mm instead of 25mm. The tokens are made of brass, and retail price (in 2007) is listed at $75.00 each. No other information on that token was given. The other reference, Lloyd C. Walker's "Catalog of Oklahoma Tokens" (1978) provides some information about the town of Miami, OK. It is the county seat of Ottawa County. Its Post Office was established in 1891. Its population is given as: 1900 - 75, 1910 - 2907, 1920 - 6802, 1930 - 8064, 1940 - 8345, 1970 - 13,880.

    Hope that helps.

    Oh, just leave them. They look just fine the way they are, don't clean them!

    $41. This is an illustration of the fact that there are just not that many collectors for certain states who are actively buying right now.

    I think that the economy has effected token sales. Everyone is tightning their pocketbooks.. but on a positive note... there are some tokens that haven't seen the light of day in several decades poping up for sale... Every cloud has a silver lining.
