    Nice save!!

    Back in the 20s, the Strawn Merchandise Co. was owned by the Strawn Coal Company. The SCC issued coupons and token that could only be used at the stores of the SMC.

    the token is listed in edkins coal token catalog

    there is an aluminum & brass variety of the one you found. both rated R-7 out of 10. has a few listed with very good pictures

    the abbrev of the die maker is in the center and reads -- /so. stp. & sta. co., / richmomd., / va. the slashes are line breaks

    good luck hunting!!!! there were a few lumber companies in the area
