    I have a standard "Carwash Token" and I have been trying to find sources that can give me the date that this was minted, or even a range of years it could have been minted, but I haven't found anything. It is the same as this coin shown here:

    If you know more about this, then please let me know. Thanks for looking.

    I have already checked numista. It says no date where it would usually have it.

    Similar tokens are still being made. The style of the "no cash value" lettering strikes me as 1970s/ 1980s. Here is a link to a company that seems to be the manufacturer and who is apparently still using at least one of the dies:

    Your token is "generic" but the same antique car die is used with a great many different reverses for various local car washes:
