Met up with an old friend and did some searching. Ended up with 22 wheat cents, a 1945 Mercury dime, 1926 Buffalo nickel and a neat token that was part of a pocket spill with four wheat cents. The funny thing was the "tails" side of the token was facing up when I flipped the plug open
The token is fairly common and is a "heads and tails" coin - literally! It says Gus' Good Food Matching Coin on the front and the address and phone number on the back. Gus' Good Food was a restaurant in Chicago. They served Italian food and were "famous for steaks and green noodles." Someone online reminisced that the restaurant had a nautical theme and the bartender would ring a ship's bell when people walked in to signal the host how many people were in the party, hence the "Bing Bong" in their advertising.
