What's the reverse look like?
Looks modern, so maybe no market for it yet.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

@chad, can you give us a little more info about this token? For example, is it a rodeo token?

With a rarity index of 97, I don't think it will be easy to find and if anyone has one for sale, it probably won't be cheap as far as tokens go.

Nice work chasing this one down @nfine!

@chad, I see that Thistledown also issued a wooden nickel token http://tokencatalog.com/display_rec...playRecords). Unfortunately, I'm not seeing either one up for sale anywhere on the interwebs.

Don't go spending it yet. You have a token from 1975 not that old and the track casino might have a box or two in a drawer. You have to find somebody that wants it, and is willing to pay for it. Subject matter isn't one that I have found to be in high demand. There probably a limited collectors group for it. Also unless there was an important happening during that time

The sad fact is most of the advertising tokens end up in a box or drawer, and then in a bulk sale or bargain bin @ the LCS.
There are fewer collectors for general tokens after the civil war. and getting fewer as they pass to the token box in the sky.
