    I found this last week at an 1860s homesite in Pennsylvania and can not figure out what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    It may be a Penn. State token . If not may have been brought in from another country. But by for, I'm no expert like other people on the forum.Good luck finding out. Nice find.

    at first, you'd think advertising token for a lantern company. It took a while to figure out what was on the other side, but blowing the pic up it looks to be a man wearing possibly a three corner hat and maybe carrying something. I can't find a match anywhere on the net, but I wonder if it's possibly a souvenir from perhaps a centennial celebration of Paul Revere, his lantern, and the 'one if by land, two if by sea' signal in the Old North Church in Boston.

    The lantern appears to be a turn of the 20th C driving lantern.

    This one is 1921.

    The one side is defiantly a carriage lamp.
    On the other side towards the bottom I see fine letters that look like O O M . there may be more.
    maybe do a bit more cleaning in that area and some more will show up.
