Here's one I just received - a $6 lesson in "do better research".
The Little Bar - Houston TX. The RS counterstamp indicates that it is a modern fantasy piece from ~ 1970, not a vintage trade token. I did a cursory search on Token Catalogue beforehand, but didn't see it so thought it was unlisted. After it arrived, I did a deeper dive and found out that it's TC-211033.

A lesson is never a bad thing when the cost is tolerable.

Took awhile to pin down the story on this little treasure:

Even though available at the Denver and Philadelphia Mint gift shops in April 2007, what has become known as Presidential "Oath Dollars" didn't become widely known to the numismatic community until July 2008 when they were offered for sale on the TV shopping network HSN. By this time, several hundred had been purchased from the Denver Mint gift shop and placed in an ANACS holder. The Mint's gift shops are run by Aramak, a private contractor. Aramak commissioned the Penny Press Mint to encase 1,000 of each Presidential dollar from each mint in an aluminum ring. They originally sold in the gift shops for $4.99. The price was later increased to $5.99.

The obverse of the aluminum encasement reads "PRESERVE, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES". The reverse has 50 stars and 50 rays and is from a stock die used with other Penny Press Mint products. The Penny Press Mint's mint mark, "PPM", is on the reverse of the aluminum encasement at 6 o'clock.

Even though the aluminum encasement IS NOT a U.S. Mint product, these pieces have become collectible to many collector's due to it being sold exclusively at the Mint's gift shop. Others think of these pieces as "gimmicky" with minimal value. Each collector can decide for themselves.

Couple more obscure Presidential coins:

Copper Token - William H. Harrison, Harrison didn't last long, about a month as President. This coin is a smaller version of the 77mm Inauguration Medal.



Brass Token - George Washington "American Fabious"
From Numista: This token was made by the Scovill Manufacturing Company of Waterbury, Connecticut during the early 20th century. Scovill was established in 1802 as a button manufacturer and is still in business today. Scovill was an early industrial American innovator, adapting armory manufacturing processes to mass-produce a variety of consumer goods including buttons, daguerreotype mats, and political tokens.
