    100 year old token spill

    Was at a 1890 home site in the city this weekend. Best tone of the day, nice tight hightone, not deep.

    Initially thought stacked LC’s, but ended up being 3 big tokens.

    First one is a Good Luck token, first time I have found this type with the Chinese symbol. Cool that is dated 1915.
    Next one is another Good Luck token. Hotel token, Detroit.

    Last one is my favorite, ID’d by the What’s It forum team as a Charge Coin Token Tag from Boston.

    Thanks for the research Jeff! Three tokens in a hole is like a mini time capsule.
