OFFICIAL U.S. GOVERNMENT TOKENS

Last week I asked, "Were there any official token issues of
the U.S. government?"

Bob Leonard writes: "I think that OPA red points and blue points
would qualify, plus the Department of Justice Internment Camp
tokens.  Both of these are World War II issues.  The Fugio cent,
in my opinion, was intended as a coin."

[Of course!  How could I forget the Office of Price Administration
(OPA) tokens?  I agree with Bob that these and U.S. Internment camp
tokens likely qualify as government-issued tokens.  Can anyone
name any others?  -Editor]
