"Fichas de Finca de Guatemala" tells the story of the use of particular currencies, known as tokens, for the payment of workers, which were used more than 120 years ago in the country. Only three copies on worldcat.

In the opinion of the authors, the use of this currency promoted the economic growth of the time, mainly in coffee and sugar farms.

The text contains maps of the time, photos of the farms, copies of the farm announcements that were used in town festivals, stamps and many images from that time.
