    Over The Hill

    Hi All,

    Here's last Saturday's hunt with Mike and Steve...

    If anyone has any info on the Thomas Jefferson token, that would be cool.

    Chris,

    Excellent job on the database. Looks great and well worked. Love the journal-type entries. Hey, I see you and Steve, but, who's that scrub in the middle? I also absoluuuuuutely love the way you removed the GE coords from the photo. Very secretive.....

    Look forward to more of those entries!

    Mike

    I found an identical token for Lincoln, and was told it was from a set by the Franklin Mint of famous presidents, and not that old (1950s I think ?)

    Nice digs though...there's no doubt silver there.

    Re: Over The Hill

    Wow

    What a great great read! Love the read, love the pics, love the finds!

    I was especially drawn to the Thomas Jefferson "token" so I thought. . hhmm, see if I can find anything ( par for course I usually don't, but still got to try )

    Anyhoot the only thing I found in my brief search was this question in reference to the "token" -
    http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...9012407AA141ff

    which sends you to -
    http://www3.tky.3web.ne.jp/~jafarr/Tokens.htm
    & the really looks like your Thomas Jefferson!! But when I re-read the question part the answer given was kinda hazy. . at least my impression was the site that was showing the "token" was . .fake?


    Anyhow I am a bit baffled that that was the only picture or even "info" I came across during my search. . . hope someone else can be of help for I sure am curious!


    Again great finds & great write up
