Whitewater, New Mexico Camp

This rare CCC token is from Whitewater, New Mexico, camp 2846. Whitewater is a small community in Grant County in southwest New Mexico. It features a cool, semi-arid climate.

There were two camps in Whitewater, one in 1936 and then another in 1938. Both worked on soil conservation projects.

The round token is small, only 20 mm in diameter. It is made from aluminum. It was used for playing billiards.

One side of the token reads:
GOOD FOR / 1 / GAME OF POOL

The other side reads:
COMPANY / 2846 / CCC
