    You Are Supposed To Dig OUT Of Prison, Not Dig One Up!

    Hit a local park that has been reluctantly producing goodies lately. Dug up a large (size of US silver dollar) token for Alcatraz federal penitentiary/ San Francisco that was buried in the softball complex common area. This is my third large copper token found in the past five months, I think I am on a roll!

    The other two "largies" found late last year. Indianapolis Speedway and Golden Gate Casino Las Vegas.

    Thats amazing. I'm surprised at the lack of information I could find on the Alcatraz token. Seems like the only info is items on Ebay. Let us know what you find out about it.

    Thanks for the kind words, ya'all! These three tokens all had VDI's of 89-92 on the ATPro. Lookingharder, based on what I can find, looking at the original plastic sleeve these Alcatraz souvenir tokens came in, they appear to have been produced in the 1970's-80's? Cheers, Sub
