This token dates from the 1920's.
The Copper-Clad Malleable Range Company of St. Louis, Missouri was in business from 1899 to 1985.
The company manufactured stoves including wood-burning, coal-burning, and gas-powered stoves.
The stoves were lined with copper as a rust preventative measure.

It is for this reason I am so tempted to collect tokens. That's a fascinating bit of history. Didn't know there were copper clad stoves.

I assume they dropped the swastika motif by the mid 30s (and probably hoping that most tokens had been lost!).

@dave, yes I think you are correct about this. Here is a quote from the tokencatalog entry on this token:


Quote:
The swastica was an American good luck symbol made popular by a fad called the "Don't Worry Club". In the 1930's the symbol was being revived. But when Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany in 1933 the revival faded.

"If you climb a good tree, you get a push."
-----Ghanaian proverb

"The danger we all now face is distinguishing between what is authentic and what is performed."
-----King Adz
