    Muscatine 2 1/2 cent token

    The front face says "Good for Return Over Mississippi River"
    The back face says "Muscatine Bridge Co. 2 1/2 CTS"

    I can find old eBay listings and that is about it, I would really like to know its history, year of creation, and perhaps its approximate worth (and if it will get me across the river still )

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    The company was organized in 1888 and the bridge was finished in 1891.
    The original toll was limited by city ordinance to 15 cents each way for teams and five cents for each person.
