    Description

    Alaska (1917-1922) Edw. W. Willis Three-Piece Set of Bimetallic Tokens. Bimetallic. This is a three-piece set with the denominations of 25, 50 and 1.00. Willis ran a billiards, cigar, and general merchandise establishment. These are among the very few Alaskan tokens to bear the word "bingle," the common term used in Alaska to describe a merchant token. These were known as a very scarce token, but as with many tokens, more always make their way into the marketplace over time. More than likely an R.3 token.
