Yes,
These kind of tokens are given to new members and normally the member would enscribe the token with their initials after becoming a member then carry this token with them from that point on. This one does not appear to have had this done. I have a few masonic tokens and masonic counter stamped coins myself.

There is a contact number in this link for the Prince Hall Chapter near Fort Benning, Ga.
Maybe that will help..
