    Swastika and Boyscouts

    Went on a water hunt and found a few things, a nice Pendant and a Token or something. It's has a swastika on one side and horse on the other, it says July 1910 and Good Luck but why would it have a swastika ?

    I believe they used that symbol way before the Germans did.

    The swastika was a good luck symbol for a long time, starting in India first. Sad how it changed the meaning....

    Sometimes these were used to hand out to people to promote a business like we use business cards. I found one made in the 1920's that had the guys name on it. I did some research and found he had 3 businesses. My how times have changed.

    Good hunt. A water hunt would feel good right now. In Maryland it has been hitting in the mud 90's.

    This was a sales gimmick giveaway by the Excelsior Shoe Company of Portsmouth, Ohio...they gave one out to each customer who bought a pair of the Official Boy Scout Shoe. The date of 1910 is the date the Boy Scouts was founded.

    Yours appears to be Version 4 of which there were 9 types:
