    The Best A Man Can Get

    Found this today. Looked like a very large copper of sorts (perhaps a foreign coin I thought) slightly smaller than a half dollar so it’s a nice size.

    Upon doing a bit of cleaning it’s a GILLETTE Heads (You Win-If You Use Gillette Safety Razors)/Tails (You Lose-If You Don’t Use It) from ca 1930. It’s my first like it and a very cool collectible token. I believe Gillette made two varieties of this token--this one and one featuring an elephant. This is the first I've seen of this type on TNET.

    Found a few more interesting items as I worked my way from the newer ca 1930s house towards the Colonial era house on this property (will post later under different thread). This is the house where I found the beautiful 1864 IHC and the unidentifiable copper under a flagstone.
