This coin has been in my collection for many years. It was part of my father's collection which was passed down to me.
The coin has been in a clear plastic sleeve in my coin collection box. Everything I know about the coin is from the website at.According to the website, Palo Seco tokens are rare due to the destruction of the majority of the tokens as well as 33 years of circulation. Examples known were probably kept as souvenirs by the few visitors and administrative personnel. They are much sought after by Panama specialists, leprosy specialists and others. Also according to the site, there were only 1,000 minted and many were destroyed. See pictures for all details.
I think the condition is pretty good for 101 years old. This coin has "part number" PT-500.05. The rarity is C (21).
