Above is a list Tokens from Ceylon MN USA based on a list sent to me by Luke Johnson, a major collector who is planing to publish a book on Minnesota Tokens.

According to Dick Grinolds, another major Minnesota collector, Tokens from Ceylon MN are not easy to find. In general most tokens did not survive, since they were destroyed when a store changed ownership and the new owner didn't want the old tokens return to be redeemed. Some from Ceylon MN, are rare with only few known to exist.

To complete this online catalog I would greatly appreciate receiving from museums, collectors or dealers 300 dpi or higher scans or digital photographs of VF of better tokens not linked above or listed with comment Photocopy.

Computer scans of the actual coins themselves outside any holder are preferred since that retains both the scale and perspective which is lost in Digital photographs. Scans from books and Auction catalogs are not as useful since they are printed at 150 dpi or less and most often in B&W.
