Token and original die, reunited after almost 60 years

Thanks once again to @mustanggt over on the BST forum I was able to pick up another vintage die and then track down a token that was struck with it.

In this particular case it turns out that I actually have owned an example of the token for many years and I thought I recognized the die when I saw it. Today I arranged a little reunion.

This has been a lot of fun, not to mention cheap entertainment, to pick up an interesting die and then locate a matching token.

After a little research it seems this is a well known token from the early 1960s. It was created to be left in place of a tip if someone had received bad service.
