The picture shows both sides of all (4) Old U.S. Advertising Tokens / Coins in this lot. The third and fourth ones are old Hard Times Tokens.

The first one has an image of an eagle with a banner in its mouth. It is marked as follows:

ALEXANDER SMITH
EST. 1845
AMERICAN RUG WEAVERS
ARDSLEY
AMERICA'S
FAVORITE
AXMINSTER

The second one has an image of an old fashioned shirt collar. It is marked as follows:

THE CELLULOID STARCH CO.
TRADE MARK
NEW HAVEN, CONN.
A GREAT INVENTION
PRESENTING THIS CHECK & FIVE CENTS TO YOUR GROCER & GET A LARGE PACKAGE.
CELLULOID STARCH

The third one is in poor condition and has a hole. There is enough of the design to know what this coin is. I had another one of these I sold that was in much better condition. On one side there is a turtle with a trunk on its back and the other side has a donkey. If it were readable it would be marked as follows:

EXECUTIVE
FINANCIERING
1837 FISCAL AGENT
I FOLLOW IN THE
STEPS OF MY
ILLUSTRIOUS
PREDECESSOR

The last one in this lot is poor also. The coin seems to be making a comparison on the two sides. On one side the date is 1837 and it pictures a ship wreck. This side reads:

VAN BUREN
METALLIC CURRENCY
1837

The other side shows the U.S.S. Constitution with full sails and it reads:

WEBSTER
CREDIT CURRENCY
1841

It is obvious which idea won out way back then! With the world living in debt on credit and credit cards. This coin is made of copper and most likely was used as a one cent currency.

To judge the sizes the first coin measures 1-1/4" wide. I am not a professional coin dealer or grader, so I will not attempt to grade these. Please see the picture for the conditions.
