Those who passionately collect coins as a hobby will be delighted to learn more about this little known set of tokens released during
the Second World War. The Office of Price Administration (OPA) tokens were used in the early 1940s as a measure to balance local supply
with overseas demand. And as such, these tokens represent that highly volatile period of American (and world) history when the government
had to control how much a family can spend just to keep things under control for the sake of the war effort. But unlike other types of
coins, OPA tokens are not exactly popular even among the average collector. In fact, not very much is now known about OPA tokens, and the
author (Wayne Cekola) relates discovering this type of token occurred out of pure chance.
Fortunately, thanks to the ardent interest of long-time coin collector Cekola, anyone can now easily start their own “hunt” for these
OPA tokens. The book is delightfully brimming with helpful information—the history of OPA tokens which were released against the backdrop
of the USA entering the war, an introduction to the tokens, including a comprehensive checklist (which can be downloaded on the book’s
official website using the password supplied in your Kindle book).
