    I have the same coin but in solid silver. I located the silver version in the Birdsell catalog and it too was # kk-215 but with no asterix. I have proof since mine has actually been handed down for 4 generations starting with my great grandfather who was an Grand Wizard but still no idea on value or where to figure it out. Everytime I post it I get people saying immediately that it is a fake reproduction piece but its been in my family for well over 100 years. Anymore info on this?Click image for larger version.

    ...That is the weakest thing I have ever heard, and would not expect it here.

    Shine the bright light of truth on the token. Display it. Show it off. Talk about it.

    "This how people lived" sort of thing.

    eh... creepy. And the link from the website is clearly from a KKK member/supporter. I think I find Nazi memorabilia less distasteful. But only by a little.

    I personally distaste any British coin.

    After all, we all know how many innocent people they killed. Countless invasions of nations to exploit their natural resources. How many dead throughout the ages?

    Everyone should have their tastes - Would we be so loudly opposed to a Genuine Genghis Khan token, or memorabilia? I think not. Most would appreciate the history ( and history lost ) due to this tyrant.

    It's probibly "too soon" for anyone interested in WW2 German coins, or KKK tokens to not be taken as a racist. But...seriously people...This stuff is interesting.

    I agree with son of a digger these peices are as interesting historically as they are disgusting socially its an intersting peice of history that i had no idea even existed and probably never would have since i dont hang out in those circles where such things would be displayed or talked about..... personally i think that displaying items like this along with slave tags/shackles and the like at a civil rights museum would only clarify just how oppressed these people were.

    I agree bone.... History needs to be talked about and learned so it is not repeated(though the kkk still exists, just not with the old violence)

    How can the token be from 1922 and have been in your family "for well over a hundred years"?

    Sadly, too often history is hushed up or rewritten to be inline with whatever political correctness is currently the flavor of choice. We can learn from mistakes and successes of the past if the facts are not hidden from us. I'd say that token should be displayed in a museum for its historic value.

    How could anyone possibly think that something as significant as this token deserve to be put back in the ground? I find that whole concept to be absurd. We are talking about history here and, although it may not be a pleasant reminder, it is something that has to be preserved for posterity and as a reminder of how painfully wrong some facets of history happen to be. Maybe this could prevent anything similar in the future! To place this token back in the ground would be tantamount to closing your eyes to its' former (and present, regretfully) existence!

    Take off your rose colored glasses, dude......the Holocaust, the disgusting treatment of American Indians, all forms of racial/religious/political/etc. prejudice and so much more, is real. It was real in 1922, it was real 2012 years ago, it is real today and it will be real tomorrow. Only through knowledge and understanding (not by closing your eyes and mind) does this world have any chance of existing in harmony.

    If anyone gets to researching klan in north and can confirm multi racial membership please holler. Legend of a list found exists (Fremont Mi. ) As well as it having been a business and social group. Find from behind false attic wall of Anderson estate, included robes. Different that what's normally portrayed of klan.?.suspect geography at work,wonder too of Illinois version.
    Token a historical item. What to do with it finders choice.
