The IL25A die from Aurora, Illinois is ascribed to the shop of S.D. Childs. Childs was a prolific token manufacturer. His dies commonly make use of a woman’s head and most of his dies use sans-serif lettering. He also produced Sutler tokens.
The IL25B die is ascribed to F.N. Dubois and as is typical, he used the F-1368 reverse die, meaning that the token was likely made prior to the Civil War.
