Recently I was researching an 1899 Elgin private label 0 size "C. D. Peacock".

One of the images that came up in my search was a Copper struck token(in the style of a Hard Times Token)
from circa 1900 by Gorham Manufacturing Company (at the request of C.D. Peacock Jewelers
of Chicago est 1837). This jeweler is still in business today. It has a great slogan on the back of the coin
"Time Is Money" and a beautifully engraved peacock on the obverse. I kept my eye out for one
that was reasonably priced and bought it. The Peacock is really beautifully engraved
(if you click on the photo you can see it up close).

Edit: Lyman Low included them in his 1906 supplement on the Hard Times Token series.
