    Late 1800's early 1900's

    I visited my mom last night and she had this old box on the carpet.



    My curiosity got the best of me and I opened it.

    It was full of vintage fountain pens and old ball point pens. There was one smaller box inside that had these.

    H. Kleinhans & Company 1899 token



    Pan-American Exposition
    Buffalo. N.Y. 1901



    Will allow 25 cents on a purchase of $5$, or over, for the return of this medal during their Anniversary week May 1-6 1899




    I don't understand why it says 1899 on one side but 1901 on the other.

    Hi - Did you learn anything more about this "token"? I found one in my dad's estate too. It belonged to one of his parents. I can't find any information about it but would like to know the year, what it was used for etc. Thanks.
