Love the Spoot.
Just makes this coin's message even more dramatic. Nice tokens.
I like your Lindemueller. I'm looking for a nice one.

Here's one on the lighter side:
NY-10F-1a (Albany, NY)
Straight's Elephantine Shoe Store

Great advertising piece made by the Scovill Manufacturing Company in Waterbury, CT. This company adapted armory mass production techniques to common household items such as buttons, tokens, mats, and medals. They were so good at it, they are still in business today!

Man I like the examples you have posted on this thread. Do you find most of these on the "Dark Bay", other auctions or from dealers at shows?
This one is in really nice condition. Can't see any wear on the high points (top of the pachyderms boots, 398 or his ear. And the color is pleasing with minimal spots.

Next to my avatar of Lindenmeuller, I think this one is my next favorite. The PA765J-1a depicts a man of the times enjoying his vice of smoking a pipe. Another great advertising piece and offering the 20 percent discount if you use real US coins to make a purchase... Of course, you'll get tokens for change.

My first store card from Pennsylvania.
