New guy to tokens, with find

Recommended Posts

My buddy and I have been detecting some unused sections of Goodale's Cutoff of the Oregon Trail in southeastern Idaho. The other day he found a 2 1/2c token from Miller's Famous Bar and Resort in Kansas City, MO. Through other forums we located the city, but have no idea on the value of his find. We think it's possible the token was brought out here by a cavalryman, possibly from Ft. Riley in Kansas. Not far from his find he also found a heel plate from the civil war era (1860-80) worn only by sergeants, and I found the bronze medallion from a civil war era cartridge box. I'll try and post a pic of the token he found. Any help greatly appreciated!
