    Went swinging today!

    Possum and I had a good day hanging out and did manage to find 2 Buffalos, 6 wheats and a mystery token. The token appears to have the initials J R stamped on one side and I see a black letter 2 on the other. Any guess on what kind of token it might be is appreciated. Thank guys Click image for larger version.

    No idea about the token, but six wheats and two buffalo nickels would have made my day. Nice recoveries!

    Well, considering the fact that I have three Buffalo nickels in total, I must agree! I've been loving your posts lately - I have to live vicariously through you! Your relics, especially, have been awesome!

    Thanks Tom! What a special compliment for me. I work tirelessly trying to get what I can before this Ol Swamp Donkey cant do it anymore. Lol

    Keep swinging buddy

    P.S. May God be with you and yours for the storm coming for the great state of Florida

    If that token is brass soak it in mineral oil for a few days and toothpick it .If still corroded soak the token again and use a folded piece of card board and a bench vise and wire brush it until you can see it . If you have a dremel and a small wire wheel that works also . Nice find .
