    Re: thought it was a washer

    Woa, we have nearly the same token.....The one on the left....

    http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...,209256.0.html

    Funny they say the same thing and number but they are slightly different. I sent a photo of my tokens you see on my posting to a Florida token expert. He told me that our similar tokens are definitely a slot machine token from around the 1940's - early 1950's. The 12439 number most likely signified a specific machine that fit our token. Unfortunately he also said that my token was very common, and worth about as much as the metal it's made of. Your token is just slightly different, so perhaps your token has a slightly different value than mine, but they are both very similar.

    That is all I know.

    Whoops, I just realized that you added a posting on my thread, so you've already seen my tokens.

    That's a cool looking token. I could see why it would look like a washer comming out of the hole.
