Here is a Good For token I found this past weekend in the area close to either Meridian ID or Nampa ID. Any info about this would be great help. Thank you.
Always enjoy finding tokens but this one I haven't been able to find any info on. Any help greatly appreciated.

The Chambres of Commerce de France used yellow aluminum bronze
"BON POUR" (good for) 50 Centimes, 1 Franc and 2 Franc coins in the years 1920-27.

It seems that lots of small business within their local regions around the World formed organizations like a 'Chamber of Commerce', and issued token coinages. The tokens facilitated business and acted as advertising pieces

There was a jas skubal listed in the Wisconsin office of dairy and food commissioner reports from 1899-1901 that I can find. Your token could be for a pint of milk from that farm.

I always find it interesting how trade tokens from Eastern or widwestern US find there way to Idaho. Since they are worthless to another merchant.
Thanks for your help. For all I knew it was from Idaho. With that name fitting and not an everyday name. Makes since to me.
