Very nice, but I'd prefer it if you squished it a bit.  Looks more like a galaxy then.  8)
And a bit more like a pac man  ;D

I went to all the bother of scanning this Star Wars "Imperial Credit" token only to find its already up; so here it is again anyway.  ::)

From Business Week Dec. 2 1996

HASBRO'S BOUNTY

Hasbro, which fended off a bid by archrival Mattel earlier this year, so far is standing by as Mattel gobbles up No.3 Tyco Toys. But Hasbro shareholders aren't weeping. The toymaker's stock is up 36% this year, near the peaks it reached during the rejected Mattel bid. Why? Earnings are fairly strong, and with a Star Wars trilogy revival set for Jan. 31, analyst Sean McGowan of Gerard Klauer Mattison expects Hasbro to sell $100 million in Star Wars action figures this year and double that in 1997.

And here's the currency symbol that's puzzling me  ::)

The currency symbol is a Resh  crossed by two lines in the upper left, with the Resh possibly standing for "Republic". The credit symbol follows the trend for currency symbols in real life such as the British Pound Sterling(), the European Union Euro(€), American Dollar ($), Cent () and many others.   :P  ;D
