I love tokens
Here a "Good For 25 cts. In Trade" Token. It was a steamboat built in 1910 and sank in 1915.

If that particular steamboat token only lasted for five years, then how many of them were put into circulation and how rare is it?
Nice find ,, Congrats

If you like tokens then have a look at this.
I had no idea what it was when I found it, but about 5 minutes of research gave me the answer.
Turns out that these are phone tokens from Turkey, but found in a baseball field in Canada?
I had never seen them before, so I thought that I would post them in your thread.
Treasure is where you find it, trash is where they left it.

I love tokens also. You got a nice one there. Wonderful to research our finds and get an identification and history.

I think older Tokens really are my favorites, you have this little piece of history in your fingers, and kind of wonder about the place that they came from that is no longer there. Hard to find, some are rare, and always a thrill to uncover. Yours is really nice, a steamboat, built 1910, sank 1915, a really great token.

I'm with you. I always like to dig the tokens. Nice find.

To add to your history of the 'Owens'.The steamboat R.M. Owens sank in Little Godel Bayou, on Lower Grand River, between Morgan City and Plaqueinine. Owens carried a cargo of 657 barrels and 59 sacks of sugar. The barrel sugars were Camperdown sugars shipped to Mr. E.A. Rainoid of New Orleans, the Oak Bluff Mfg. Co. The bag sugars were Shadyside sugars, shipped to Milliken and Farwelll, of New Orleans.

the older tokens are a reminder to us of history past. they represent coolness in their own way as you research them. I like them because they are history in your hand that you now have. and that is an awesome token from a very short time period. congrats
