    WOW token

    I recently found a Woodmen of the World token with a bullet hole in it. The token has two shaking hands on one side and "WOW" on the other. Does anyone have any info on age or anything else about this token? The token is in the top center of the pic.

    Check www.woodmen.org or wikipedia for more info on the Woodmen of the World, but it is a semi-fraternal organization that has a major benefit of insurance for its members. Founded in 1890, it is still in business. The token you have is one of their "pocket pieces", similar to a Masonic Penny, that was probably given to a person when they joined and bought insurance. I've seen a number of varieties, both in brass and aluminum. My guess on dating is 1900-1925, but that is just a guess.
