Border War during the Mexican Revolution, circa 1916, involving Pancho Villa.It is brass, and measures about 36mm in diameter. Similar to HK 892 in "SO-CALLED DOLLARS" by Hibler & Kappen.
The obverse depicts a U.S. soldier firing a carbine, surrounded by cactus. The legend states "In Memory of My Army Life on the Mexican Border."
The reverse has the familiar American Eagle with stars and military acoutrements and the words "Trust in the Lord - And - Keep Your Powder Dry [not a big problem in the SW desert].
Tokens like these were given to loved ones who served in the military during this period, including after the U.S. entry into WWI. The Border War lasted from about 1910 to 1919 and featured the pursuit of Pancho Villa by General Pershing's forces into Mexico in 1916-17.
A rare version of a "soldier's token", but quite a bit larger than the other version shown in the Moneta Museum.
