    Any info on "Good Luck" (Swastika) Private Tokens?

    I saw one at a flea market once... it was an interesting piece, but I didn't look into it beyond that. Now at TNet, I see a lot of people find them with Metal Detectors... now I'm interested in them. Do people collect them? What's the history behind them?

    What you need to track down and read is a copy of Gary Patterson's book, "United States Swastika, 1907-1936" and his update. These cover all sorts of medals, tokens, fobs, etc. that carry an image of a swastika, both left and right-handed (armed?) ones. Yes, they are widely collected and his book covers the history of many of the pieces. The swastika was widely used as a good luck symbol until the Nazi party started using it. The book is privately printed, and I am sure still available. His e-mail is gptokens at comcast dot net.

    I found one about 20 years ago in an old roadway.It said drink coca cola and had a coke bottle embossed on it. I sold it at an antique store for a lot less than it would be worth now. Always wished I would have kept it. I was really young then and didn't know what I had. One lives and one learns.

    You want history on the coins/tokens or the swastika itself ?
