For an older token, this has an unusually high denomination. It's 31.7 mm in diameter.





So far as I can determine, the Biederman Furniture Company was founded in Missouri in 1909 and expanded over the decades to operate numerous retail locations within that state.The firm appears to be now defunct.

Very nice @lc. I really like how these can be dated somewhat by the number of stores listed on the token. Your token says "four", but the example on tokencatalog says "seven" and dates to the sixties. It appears that this one comes from somewhere in the 1955 to 1959 timeframe.
