    Complete 1935 Alaska Bingles Set
    AU to Mint State

    (1935) Complete Eight-Piece Alaska Bingle Set, AU to Mint State Uncertified. These tokens were issued by the U.S. government for the use of the colonists of the Matanuska Valley Colonization Project, and were redeemable only at the Alaska Rural Rehabilitation Corporation stores. The "bingles," as they were called, were in use only about six months during 1935 and 1936, after which they were redeemed for regular U.S. money and destroyed (2009 Guide Book, p. 400). This complete set consists of the cent (aluminum, octagonal, 22 mm), the five cent (aluminum, round, 21 mm), the ten cent (aluminum, round, 18 mm), the twenty-five cent (aluminum, round, 24 mm), the fifty cent (aluminum, round, 31 mm), the one dollar (aluminum, round, 35 mm), the five dollar (brass, round, 24 mm), and the ten dollar (brass, round, 31 mm). Grades range from AU to Mint State. In green custom holder.
    Ex: Estate of Abe Kosoff (Bowers and Merena, 11/1985), lot 4227 (auction flip included).
