    These are some really cool Tokens, most are listed as being from the 1850's! I had one delivered to me today, maybe some of you know this already but some are signed by Lauer and some aren't. Also, there's different sizes, and I never realized that either. Honestly, this was a very educational buy for me so I will share. :D The prices on ebay are going through the roof!! :banghead: I should have bought them and started a small collection years ago, anyone collect these? Below is the 19.5mm one with a nice die crack and below that is the bigger one at 27.5 that was delivered to me today. If you have any please post a pic! :happy:

    Nice one! Lauer and Spiel Marke made a ton of Tokens and Medals for the USA, someone should write a book and if there's already a book, let me know! :D Here's an 1894 Midwinter unlisted So Called Dollar made by Lauer. I was bidding on it but lost! That's okay though, as I didn't even know it existed until I started bidding on it! :cigar:

    I read somewhere that Spiel Marke translation is play money.
