  1. Yes that is correct they are tool checks, each person was assigned a number and issued 6 to 10 checks. Having worked in the tool crib in high school. the check was placed on a nailin the spot were the tool normally was. Since they each had a unique number assigned to only one person. The could also be used as in/out, tags. Generally they were used in dangerous environments foundries,smelters, mines, quarries, any place that could and often did result in death. They were often referred to as body tags by the workers.
  2. Here is a free PDF on the history of challenge coins, https://www.google.com/search?q=UAHCC-v0.99&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8 In the last few years there have an increase in first res ponder unit coins and fantasy coins to truely be a challenge coin there must be a rank on it. Either military or in the government officials ie president etc. Since there are few ranks in the police and fire depts. It wouldn't seem tyhat the challenge drinking game would work to well.
  3. Here is a nice pair of the pressed souvenir name tags, one doesn't often get both, the open center and closed center ones with the same persons name on them. one can barely make out the falls in the center of the disc.
  4. Recent 60's,thru 2010s as A&P bought the chain and then let it sink over the years. Farmer Jacks closed in the summer of 2010. The token came into the LCS from somebody that thought it was an ancient although you couldn't make out what was on it but he was another but I saw something on the internet! I conserved it and when he came back with a silver 1943 penny (mercury coated) he was given a sheet of pictures of it. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!😼
