unusual tokens

Postby coppinpr » Sat Nov 24, 2018 2:34 pm

I was counting out some tokens for a guy in the USA who wanted 500 R&W 6d tokens for his UK machines and I thought id quickly sort out a couple of jars of mixed odd tokens and I found a few that seemed interesting,anyone got any info?
the first interesting rather than unidentified batch were marked "36th Engineers GP, NCO open mess, 5 cents " and "K-8 APO 64,NCO open mess ,5 cents" both these US military units are listed as having been in south Korea, ("K-8" was a US air base, APO 64 was a US air force post office) this second token can be found for sale by US coin dealers for $6
next ,a "Victory Bell" token,would this be quite old or not? and a token interesting for what is written on it " loaned for amusement only, 3" and on the reverse "property of the machine" (?)
