FOOD STAMP CHANGE TOKEN INFORMATION SOUGHT

Scott M. Hopkins submitted this request for assistance in his project cataloging Food Stamp Change Tokens. Can anyone help? -Editor

Food Stamp Change Tokens

With the guidance of Paul Cunningham I have been gifted the immense notes and collection he has put together of Food Stamp Change Tokens. With the assistance of long time collectors Eliseo Ramos and Jerry Schimmel I have pieced together a sizable collection and about a year and a half ago began work on a catalog of these items.

I have been listing each token available for each state and town. Obviously, there are thousands of listings. I have also produced a bit of a Collector's guide including such topics as the manufacturers, the politics of the food stamp era, personal stories of recipients, the original authors and researchers of these and even grading plastic tokens such as these. I am not including the paper scrip as there is even far more of that, much of it lost to time.

What I'm really hoping for are some more contributions from some of the collectors who I may have missed who have been enthusiastic about this topic from the beginning or those who have any examples in their collections who would like to share listings and photos that I may not have. This will also help in producing a more accurate rarity scale. I'm looking for more information on the manufacturers and any collecting or historical price points. My hope is to have the final ready this time next year for publication. Any contributors will be acknowledged in print.
