    old gas station fills my tank with treasure!

    Here in Vegas you have to keep your eye out for any construction, usually means you have but a week before its gone and turned into a parking lot. Ive had my eye on a old gas station built between 1910 -1920, been long out of service and surprised it lasted this long.I noticed some activity, some areas have been lifted up and a whole strip had plants installed which left a line of dirt. I knew there was going to be a lot of iron being a gas station. Well needless to say I was the first one there, I dug up quite the finds. Here is the list, ive also inc. Photos of the station and some info on my finds, im a
    happy , man today : )

    Dr Pepper token circa.1907-1910
    Hyvis motor oil token 1930's

    Wonderful 4 U...all I dug today was pull tabs, can slaw, and nails. I really love the Dr. Pepper token even though it's a bit chew up.

    Thanks, my early token finds here from Vegas are always my favorites, here is another early find listed as a R10 1-3 known to exist.
