@circus, hey thx for creating this thread and silly me for not noticing it previously. I was photographing one of my wooden nickels earlier to day and thought that it might be fun to have a thread where I could post these things. I've got a few tucked away, but only one for uploading today.

Here is a wooden nickel ply from Scranton PA that helped to celebrate their Diamond Jubilee in the summer of '41. It is labeled Series 1, with a serial number of 392.0. I honestly don't know to much about these things other than they seem pretty fragile so please feel free to provide any additional detail.

Here's a set of the woods issued by the Columbia, SC Sesqui-Centennial Commission back in 1936. They go along with the 1936 Columbia, SC commemorative half dollar. More details can be found in one of my previous Columbia, SC posts. Read it here: Columbia, SC Half Dollar Cousins.
