    Those are cool. Real historic, a reminder of child labor, being paid in tokens instead of American cash, redeemable at the company store. Sure glad those practices went away. Or at least it's unseen now. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice finds. A wooden toothpick might get some of that crust off without damaging it. Dont use metal or you will scratch it.
