4. Bi-metallic Trade Token from the USA….by James Ballard, USA

This is a 38 mm bi-metal token that was good for $10.00 at the Leader Supply Co. in Osceola, PA.
Zenoia, Louisiana was a late 1800's - early 1900's sawmill town in Louisiana.
It no longer exists except as a dot on the map. This type of town was called a company town because the company owned everything in the town, including the company store. Workers were often paid with company trade tokens good only at the company store. This one caught my eye because it was located about an hour's drive from my home.

5. Quiz Game #763…by Jack Hepler, USA

His military talents made him the most important military asset of Mexican Constitutionalism. He defeated Francisco Villa's Northern Division at the Bajío region. He was a radical and proclaimed the Plan of Agua Prieta. He was President of Mexico when he brought about national stability, promoted agricultural policies and formed worker organizations. While dining with his friends, he was shot and killed in 1928 by José de León Toral, a Roman Catholic who held him responsible for religious persecutions. His image appears on a 2008 Bi-metallic 5 Pesos. What is the name of this Mexican Patriot?

Answer to Bi-metallic Quiz Game question #762.
It was reported that in 2010, researchers expecting to find 12 sets of remains actually found 14 sets in urns holding the heroes of Mexico's 1810-1821 independence movement. Experts, who spent more than two months studying the skeletal remains, said all 14 were determined to belong to patriots of the war. One of the “unknown heroes" turned out to be Victor Rosales. The second set of remains belongs to a man whose image may be seen on a 2009 Bi-metallic Mexican 5 Pesos. What is his name?

The correct answer to Bi-metallic Quiz Game question #762 is Pedro Moreno.
