    1st token

    Found this store token on Monday. Found it in a field where the only other things had been trash and a few coins. NEar as we can tell, we found it about a mile from where the store was located.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Yes. I tracked down the owners grandson, and am giving him the token on Monday for his family collection of things related to the store.

    Thanks for the link.

    What is so odd, in my VERY limited experience, is that we have found nothing else even remotely old at this site. No silver coins, not even old trash. Just clad, and a lot of Mt Dew cans.

    If I find one or two old silver a year it's a lot. Larger coppers more so. Don't give up. Token is more scarce then silver. Once trash is gone the faint hits will probably pay off.
