    Political chicken watch fob for 1908, Wheats, sterling ring, a dinosaur token

    Had a nice half day hunt with a new metal detecting friend. He invited me to meet at a permission he had to do some hunting. I found 6 Wheat pennies, a nice sterling silver ring, a gold plated earring, and an unusual find. A political watch fob for the presidential election of 1908 between William Howard Taft and William Jennings Bryan. The fob is a chicken fob with 1908 and Bryan on it. The fob for Taft, which I don't have, was a possum with 1908 and Taft on it. Taft won the election as we all know and Bryan went down as aClick image for larger version.

    Nice work John, congrats!

    Cool dino token, what's it made of? I collect political memorabilia too, but mostly buttons. The 3D items are always cool to see the way candidates slandered each other back then. Nice silver ring!

    The Dino token is made of aluminum and the fob is a favorite of mine.
