    1841 william harrison token updated w/ new scan

    found somthing interesting. got a strong quarter signal at 4 inches.
    out popped a tarnished quarter, no........the pic was wrong. pic of 9th pres. william harrison.
    on the back is a brief story of his 31 day presidency.
    the only date on the coin is 1841.

    it was found just a few blocks from the courthouse in wayne wv. on private property(with permission)

    Looks like one of those Shell gasoline tokens that were given away a few years ago...

    I agree.
    I remember the Shell tokens from the late 60s; others remember the tokens from the 70's--perhaps a different series. Either way, the 1841 date signifies only Harrrison's year in office as the President.

    Looks as if it's from one of the presidential commemorative or so-called "presidential data" series issued around 35-50 years ago. Some were given away at gas stations, others at banks, and I believe some were also used as prizes in boxes of breakfast cereal. Later, they were also sold in sets or albums in gift and hobby shops.
