    These old tokens, also known as bar chips are from now closed bars which was located in Larksville, Wilkes-Barré, and Plymouth,PA.

    Such chips were given when one patron wanted to buy another one a drink. Different shapes, and/or colors determined what type of drink was to be given.

    Many bars had such tokens, but now with contemporary registers, paper slips are printed, usually with the value and date printed on it. This is designed to keep customers from trying to get a higher priced drink with a lower valued chip. And they are dated so that they must be used on the date issued.

    These colorful and nostalgic collectibles have a good following of collectors.
