Probably get more answers in the "What is it " section.
Stand up for what's right, even if your standing alone.

It's rather difficult to give a even a ball park value of an item without clear, close up photographs of both sides of an item.

Nice find! The 1¢ and $1 denominations are listed in Clark's Florida Trade Tokens book as $5+. The 50¢ denomination is not shown as known there or in the Wagaman Ingle book. The records of the Ingle company says that these tokens were shipped to Mitchell (who I think was Jesse M. Mitchell) in 1910. See his gravestone at:
Jesse M Mitchell (1869 - 1935) - Find A Grave Memorial
If you could post pictures, that would be appreciated. Also consider posting them on Richard's Token Database - TokenCatalog.com
