    Cool 👀Today's Finds👀

    Hunted about 5hrs this morning, early before the heat!! The site was a old 1855 home and the address is **** ****** ** ********, OR!!! I found a cool 1905 Portland Fair pin I believe, about 6 inches in roots. Also some old shot gun shells (UMC No 16 New Club and Winchester Blue Rival No 10). Found a play coin from chicken little as well!
    (1905 Portland Oregon fair was the Lewis and Clark centennial)

    Hope you enjoyed today's Finds! HH

    Hey Kurios1, thanks! From my understanding chicken Little is a folklore and turned into books and games. I actually got some information on this play coin from A past post on Tnet. Oh and I was going to message you and see if you knew there's another gentleman from Dixon on here he goes by DigginDave, thought you might want to know. HH

    Yeah it is "J Howard Taylor Columbia SD" did a quick Google search and found he was a pharmacist in 1905 in Columbia South Dakota. Pretty cool!

    Thanks for the post HH

    Update: I found out a little more information about the token, here is a reply from Oregon historical society:

    Thank you for your email. We have a few of these in our museum collection, all with different names engraved. I believe these were a commemorative token sold at the Lewis & Clark Centennial Exposition and Oriental Fair of 1905 in Portland. I think visitors could pay and request their names be added to the souvenir. For more information, you could research the fair and its souvenirs. Our research library may be a good place to start: http://librarycatalog.ohs.org/EOSWebOPAC/

    Best of luck!
