Two Encased Coins
« on: November 08, 2013, 09:16:44 AM »
I am working with a new printer/scanner, an HP7610. I got it for the large platen.

Encased coins were a popular advertising medium until about half a century ago. As with the Krause token, they have never really gone away, but since the 1960s, they fell to competition for the firm's advertising budget.

I really like the Krause token.  It's a shame that so few firms still use tokens and medals.  I've got an extensive collection of Reader's Digest tokens but I don't believe they even make these any longer.
