Hop Kee/Restaurant/Copperopolis, Cal.//GF/One Meal/scal./A/25 (one is worn off). This is a possible modern restrike by Irvine Jachens. Jerry Schimmel adds: "Your token is a collector-made mule of two different tokens. The obverse is correct, but the reverse is from another token. A number of these were concocted in the 1960s by two collectors. I have one similar to 3289 and the original token as well. The original ( which is extremely rare) reads "Good For One Regular Meal," not Good For One Meal. Also the number of lobes is different. Kappen's listing appears to be a mixture of both pieces and is not at all clear."
