They are issued by various mining, firms to miners seeking advances on their waget 'tetwecn paydays. They cin b* pent in company stores like real money. Usually, the name and addrcsj of the mining company and the words "In Trade, Not Transf." are stamped on the coins, indicating they're not to be spent outside the coal camp. The United Mine Workers launched a drive to eliminate the coins during World War II because many miners were losing money by "cutting" scrip. Miners hard pressed for cash would draw scrip from the company and sell it to "discounters" at about 75 per cent of face value. This drive to eliminate scrip was not completely successful, though, and the coins still are used in some West Virginia coa towns.
