    The wedding token is .835 silver
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Better pics of the 1797. Unfortunately I cannot determine the variety due to the severe wear on the reverse.

    If it is 1 franc (23 mm)

    - km# 844.1 (regular)
    - km# 844.2 (1914-C, key date, can only be identified by mintmark which is on the token side)

    If it is 2 francs (27 mm)

    - km# 845.1 (regular)
    - km# 845.2 (1914-C, non key, can only be identified by mintmark which is on the token side)

    Ok, I weighed it. It is definitely a 2 Francs coin. My wife did some research and she believes it to be a "calling card" for a Debutante "coming out" party.

    It looks like the address is now in North Philadelphia (the bad part of town).

    That area is a college area near Eastern State Penitentiary and the Art Museum. It is an "ok" area.

    I went back and checked and I would say it is on the level of a few other neighborhoods that are not in North Philly.
