MORE ON MILITARY PAYMENT TOKENS (POGS) FOR IRAQ

Regarding last week's item from Paul Sherry about military
payment tokens used in Iraq, Joe Boling writes: "These are
pogs, the token coinage issued by AAFES (Army and Air Force
Exchange Service). They are not cardboard, but plastic. See
www.aafespogs.com for complete information about them. There
have been ten emissions so far. See also
Full Story
for a series of articles by Colonel (Doctor) Bill Myers about
them. Myers won the best of show exhibit award at FUN two
years ago with an exhibit of pogs, and gave a numismatic
theater program on them at this year's convention."

Tom Michael of Krause Publications writes: "I read in the
E-Sylum a report of new military chits, tokens, or what we
called in the Middle east Book, pogs.  We made a very
comprehensive list of all military pog style tokens up to
the date of publication for 'Coins & Currency of the Middle
East' and since then George Cuhaj has been keeping up with
new issues in the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money -
Modern Issues book.

"Eventually I think George intends to move them to the
Specialized Issues volume, but for now you can find full
listings of Military pogs in our SCWPM- Modern Issues."
