Coin World Podcast: Episode 020 — Forgotten History: Commemorative coins, silver fineness, and Ray Bows

Chris and Jeff talk with Ray Bows, an expert on gaming tokens used in NCO and other recreation clubs in Vietnam in the 1960s and '70s. He has used the tokens from slot machines to identify bases and military facilities named after fallen soldiers, in addition to compiling an extensive collection of the tokens. They also discuss U.S. commemorative coins celebrating places and events in the greater Chicago area in honor of ANA, which will be in Rosemont this week.
