    Rutherford B. Hayes President token

    Found this today here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at a house
    dating back to 1889. When I dug it up I wiped it off enough
    to see a date and read 1877 and thought I had a real old coin.
    Did a search here and found it was only a token. Still very cool!!
    Not sure what the value, monetarily or historically it holds.
    Maybe someone could fill me in on this token or tokens like
    this in general.
    Thanks
    Randy

    Randy....I found one just like that last week but it was of Herbert Hoover...I posted it on the What is it page....closest answer I got was that it may be a token issued by Shell gas stations...newer than 1940.....no clue as to the value etc...thats the best I can do for you. Cool token regardless of the age or value....congrats!!!

    Thanks MD
    Ya, I thought it was pretty cool too. Found my first indian head penny today in
    the same yard. Also a mercury dime and a whole bunch of wheat pennys. Started
    this hobby in August so this was like the best day I've ever had. Also found about
    a dozen play money coins that I'll have to post on here to see what they are.
    Keep a digging,
    Randy

    Randy....Congrats on your first IH and mercury dime...you;ll be glad you got into this hobby...it can be very fulfilling and rewarding, it can also drive you nuts... For future reference....when taking a pic of a coin....don;t use alligator clips to hold it, especially the silver ones, for you can scratch and/or mar the coin and ruin the value of it. Again, welcome to the forum and the hobby, look forward to many more posts of your finds on here.
    HH!!
