USA, wooden nickels & similar
    Cute local and private wooden tokens seem to have made their first appearance in the late 19th century, had their heyday from the 1930s-50s, died out in the 70s.  Probably tens of thousands of types were made.  Most are very low priced collectibles.  A few are what you might call interesting.
