    to make sure that we under stand the 94 % is the rarity of the token . not the grade ..there's had some ware and scratches on the face of the token . this one dose not .. and has been in a silver pitcher its whole life ... never circulated .. it was given to friend waiting for a bus . she put the token I a silver pitch and that's where it remained till to night ..

    she never said where she was when she got it , but she moved to Hawaii for 15 years and then lived here for over 50 years . back then they took a bus or train to calf. then took a plane ..one thing you all should think about is the copper coin is cheaper but some times more rare because of it metal erosion factors.. these were handed out near the door way and near a bus stop where she waiting for a bus . they would hand them out to get people to come in and play slots ., at that time slots were 1 cent . so I don't know when it was made but that's as small as coin as they had back then I guess ... penny slot did not stay around long ...

    Looks like a very common arcade token. Post it to Idahotokens, he is the expert on tokens.

    What are you smoking? This is a modern casino video-arcade token from the 1980s. "Rarity" does not equal value, even if the scale you reference has any true meaning.
