What North Idaho Lumber Industry?

On his blog, The Slice, Paul Turner headlines: “Probably aren't many of these around.” Paul found this wooden nickel at the Streamwood site, which advertises: “We buy, sell, and trade collectibles from all areas of scouting such as Boy Scouts of America, Cub Scouts, Webelos, Order of the Arrow, National Jamborees, World Jamborees, Explorers, and Foreign Scouting. Our inventory includes many different items like mugs, uniforms, neckerchiefs, patches, handbooks, insignia, rank badges, position badges, council shoulder patches, OA pocket flaps, collecting guidebooks, stamps, stickers, seals, tokens, knives, collecting supplies, display cases, spoof patches, and much, much more!”

DFO: I have one “wooden nickel” collectible. It sez, “Save the last one!” (with a cartoon picture of a donkey on one side) & “Re-Elect Dan English, County Clerk” on the other. Do you have any political collectibles?
