    I just got a couple tokens in a small lot I ordered and I am smitten lol.

    I'd love to see some other food related tokens and exonumia!

    This one is ridiculous, I love it!

    That’s a great advertising token, one of the best I’ve ever seen. Congrats

    The butt side may be alluding to the "making bacon" joke from the 70's.

    Or maybe heads or tails?

    I have a similar token, but it's a head/tails flipper not an advertising piece.

    Gus' Good Food was a Chicago Italian restaurant founded in 1906.
    It was known as the "Bing Bong" Restaurant as the waiter would ring a bell when someone entered.
    It was also "Famous for Steaks and Green Noodles".
    The restaurant closed in 1964.

    This "pig front and rear" token was probably manufactured in the 1940's.
    There are many varities of these pig tokens issued as advertising tokens.
