    I was pretty excited to find these super bright NYC transit tokens recently. I'd like for them to stay bright. Should I encapsulate them ? IMG_20231202_035919.jpg IMG_20231202_035851.jpg

    The Duenweg, Joplin and Webb City Strawberry tokens were almost definitely minted by the same maker.

    Duenweg 1 tray (close MO), MO-16.

    I have a pretty extensive collection all related to numismatics. In recent years I've been particularly interested in older material. Some of it's hard to find but once in awhile an interesting older example shows up.

    I just picked up this 1946 token from a Steve Hayden auction. It's a good size at 38mm Seattle CC (38mm) 1946 (2).JPG

    That one is:
    1890's Argentinean $10 Game Counter - 10 D (Fauver Eagle-1130 / Argentina-1000 kpa) with an assigned rarity factor of R8. The small star beneath Liberty.

    The one I have bears a large star. It is:
    1890's Argentinean $10 Game Counter - 10 D (Fauver Eagle-1137 / Argentina-1020 b) with an assigned rarity factor of R6.

    His should be 26.5mm / 27mm

    It is listed in L.B. Fauver's AMERICAN COUNTERS - Part 1.

    It is quite rare / difficult to find. Yours is the first I have seen.

    It's a complete type set, but there are 2 more varieties of the 1 qt. and 1 other variety for the 1 tray.

    MO-13 Duenweg, 1 qt. (far S, aligned T)
    MO-14 Duenweg, 1 qt. (close S, unaligned T)
    MO-15 Duenweg, 1 tray (far MO)
