    DW - Your token is listed in the Bowker & Lee Wyoming Trade Tokens book, but with no additional information. It is of the style that would date roughly 1905-1915. Consider posting pics on tokencatalog.com - and BTW, normal convention is to call the side with business name and location the front or obverse and the side with denomination is back or reverse.

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

    Basin was known as Basin City until it was incorporated in 1902 and 'City' was dropped from the name; so your token certainly post-dates 1901 as indicated by John's comment above.

    Basin, Wyoming has a library. You may wish to contact its Director, Donna Capellen, at "donna.capellen@bighorncountywy.gov" and ask about your token. If she can't help you, you might ask her for information that will lead you to that county's Historian.
