It might be a little too early or too late. :D
This cool token arrived today.

A jovial Santa graces this token from The Denver Dry Goods Co. It was made by Whitehead & Hoag Company and is currently the only example graded at PCGS (it is an MS 62).

There is a listing on tokencatalog:

    That Santa looks just like an old Navy shipmate, who, in later years, played Santa each year for family and friends. Sadly now passed. I will look around for one of those and send it to his wife. Cheers, RickO
