    Liberty Bell / 5 Cent Trade Token

    I found this yesterday and was wondering its age. I found it listed on TAMS but it had nothing other than its brass and listed as a maverick token. Any help with its age would be greatly appreciated!!

    It's an early 1900's slot machine token. The Liberty Bell slot machine was invented around 1895 by Charles Fey, a San Francisco mechanic, and soon copied by a number of competitors. After 1915, the Liberty Bell model was renamed the Operators Bell.

    Here's a link to a pic of the machine:
