MILITARY PAYMENT TOKENS FOR IRAQ

Paul Sherry writes: "A friend of mine, Bruce Mansfield, met
a young man who was on leave in Australia from his security
company in Iraq. He gave Bruce some tokens that personnel in
Iraq, who have access to the US Canteen Service are given
to use instead of coins.

"Here are pictures of the tokens he was given.  They are by

many different types there are. They are made of thin, heavy
cardboard type material approx 0.5mm thick and approximately
40mm diameter."
