Bantam 2 mile token: Encased Penny

Two cents a mile sounds great to me!  Back when the 1938 Bantam was introduced, the company produced a souvenir encased penny to commemorate the special car.  The coin was an advertising gimmick highlighting the thriftiness of the small car with big car styling.  I’ve seen these on ebay before, and they usually sell for much more than a penny.  While I think they’re neat, they’re still out of my budget for a penny.
