This composite shows the front and back of a milk token from my elementary school – Gallaher Elementary. I figure they used tokens to either keep bullies from getting rich off of milk money or to avoid the “free” stigma Murdock’s school subjected the poor kids to.
(MURDOCK EDIT: I’m pretty sure this means Sullivan bullied some poor child who ended up going milkless. I mean, how else do you still have a token in your possession? YOU MONSTER!)
