Paper coal scrip was also issued. Unlike the brass, copper, nickel and aluminum tokens, the paper scrip was not re-used once it was spent at the company store. Coal company scrip continued to be used throughout the Appalachian coal regions into the early 1950s. Since scrip could only be spent at the company store the miners had to pay whatever the company charged . Some miners sold their scrip at less than face value in order to obtain hard currency to use outside the company store.
