    Found on Top the Ground!!! / Token Cache:Updated Pic

    Hey all, My dog Rufus likes to dig around a Big ole Elm tree in the backyard and as a result of one of his excavations I found these two tokens near one of the castoff piles of dirt. We got a good hard rain lastnite and they were just laying there right on top of the ground. One is a 5 center and the other a 25 center, with no markings on the other side/blank. Are these just generic type tokens? The numerical style is alittle different on each. History of the area dates to 1870's.
    Think i'll get my detector and go over that ground alittle closer

    Ok,Today after work i grabbed my md and went to the spot where i found the first 2 tokens the day before and my md started getting some hits. Here are the results. 23 more these tokens all in about a 2ft. radius for now. This is the most stuff i've ever found in one spot. Needless to say i got pretty excited and my 4 legged metal detector Rufus got extra dog treats!!!

    Hey birdman, I'm sure some tokens are valuable. I don't know beans about tokens. But, some other replies said these were slot machine tokens. I hav'nt a clue as to value? It's just fun finding them.

    Yeah N.J.THer, Before the day before yesterday i was token poor. Today i'm token rich!!!! I found 5 more today!!! posted in TODAYS FINDS...

    Hey allen, I'm going to set him up even better than that! I've got him a female companion located at a pet foster home that rescues dogs/cats and then rehomes them to folks that really can/want to give them a forever home. I hope to pick her up in about a week. My dog Rufus is also a rescued animal. He had been dumped on the side of a country road, but i rescued him myself with help from my friend "nature girl". I've had him about a year now and he's a great dog...

    You picked a good dog! My brother's dog waits until I dig the plug and then sticks his nose in the hole smelling for gold... or t-bones!

    The future of detecting is up you you! Do it right.
