Love old Token's

Found this yesterday, trying to fine out more about it. It is a Token from the Hamilton Trust Co. in Paterson NJ. dated 1919. I was able to make out the front, but the back is in bad shape.

I love old tokens, too! Appears that that bank was one of many that went belly up during that time. From what I gathered online, most of their business was in lending to weavers, which comprised most of the industry in Paterson back in the day...hence the nickname, "The Silk City". I attached a photo of the bank in its heyday.
