    Assuming the token was used in a grocery, there would have been other denominations. Grocery stores used tokens this large either for extending credit or for purchasing stock.

    So do you think it's 50 cents or 50 dollars, this token? That's one of the things that has me confused as every trade token I've seen denotes whether or not it's cents or dollars.

    50 cents. $50 would be a month's pay in 1912!

    Very true. I also tend to find that most tokens match the coin denomination they mimic as far as size goes. This one is the size of a half dollar. My older brother found a 1$ token from a timber company in florida and it's the diameter of a morgan or peace. Just odd not to have "cents" stamped on it. First one I've seen like that.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I have already posted it there. Someone had started a catalog on it, but didn't upload photos. It seems this was done some time back in 2012. I believe for a 10cent (just shows 10) denomination. I uploaded my pics in hopes that it helps someone else. I'm still at a loss as to what it truly is.
