    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.

    Nice mix of finds....the good luck token were stamped out at circuses and fairs back in the time....your religious medallion could be silver or silver plated copper....try nicking it and see if it shows as silver or copper underneath.

    those tokens were made on a machine called a "Metal Typer". They were common in arcades and tourist areas. I'm 49 and I remember using them when I was a kid. They have been around much longer than me though. I've dug a few of these tokens, including one dated 1913. Evidently it was made during that year, because my grandma knew the woman who's name was on it and she said it was not the year of her birth. Here's a link for a picture of the machine.... Metal Typer. Luck made here. | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Similar fobs were sponsored by the Disabled American Veterans- coincidental, perhaps, being Veterans Day today.

    eivs in obitv nro pra sentia mvniamvr

    Benedictine medal.
    The words are Latin for
    Eius in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur' meaning May we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death.
    PS:
    the letters 'S M Q L I V B' and 'V R S N S M V' which translates to the Latin Vade retro Satana! Nunquam suade mihi vana. Sunt mala quae libas. Ipse venena bibas. meaning Begone Satan! (or with similar meaning).
