Had a great hunt! Anybody know what M.A.L is abbreviated for on old maps? I believe this site isn’t a home site but a store of some sort. All targets is a coin. Maybe mal stands for Merchant and Livery?

Interesting token too! What does it say on both sides? Some of it are a bit hard to read.

Nice finds! The only thing I could find was a Wikipedia entry for Malta Rail Station. The station code is MAL. The station was opened in 1893 and is located in Malta, Montana. Don't know if that jibes with your map or not.
