    Irish Token w/Explicative, from Glen Echo Park, Maryland

    I found this in my yard in Washington, DC. It's from a nearby park called Glen Echo Park, which is no run by the National Park Service. There is a lot of history about the park but I can't find info on this token.

    It's and looks like it has holes punched in it. Maybe a street car token?

    From Wiki
    "The site was first developed in 1891 as a National Chautauqua Assembly and then operated as an amusement park until 1968."

    While the letters are hard to read, under a loupe I can see a phrase that is surprising!! Am I'm missing something? Does this really say what I think it says!

    The token is almost 2" wide. One side reads, "LILY SAYS FUC* MURRAY" Center w/a star reads, "GLEN ECHO PARK"

    Amusement parks, arcades and other locales had machines to custom stamp souvenirs/luck charms. Makes yours a personal item more than a commercial one...
