Every effort will be made to include all lots in a single shipping charge calculated to cover the weight and size.
Both tokens "Arsenal CAnteen", but no city shown, uniface with counterstamps on reverse. One for 5c, other for 3 1/2c. Very interesting that these Benecia tokens are for 3 1/2 cents while the rest of California used a 2 1/2 cent denomination for things such as a shave, cigar, etc. The 5c token is counterstamped LL, and the 3/12c token 12"R.88. Clearly pre-1900 tokens, possibly from the 1880's.
