yes it's hard to read but maybe someone has found something similar in the past and can help me ID it... on one side I can make out 5 and a circle of dots, the reverse side I can only make out the word ICK and a few letters around... I believe it's aluminum and about the size of a penny. rang in at 12-42/43 on the E-trac

never mind.. a friend who has better eyes ID'd it as a aluminum/tin "Wooden Nickel" play money he said because of the word "FIVE" that it's probably 40's or 50's... and had an Indian head on both sides...

As a kid in the mid "50's" I vaguely remember play Money packs being sold at the "5 and 10" or Woolworth's stores.
We wanted some:). It was in a plastic bag and had some paper money and aluminum coins.
I don't recall much more about it - Parents were strict and not about to spend good Money on fake Money.
Real Coins were valuable and were kept in small coin purses.
Anyone remember 10 Cent Beers and Gas at 20 cents a gallon?
