Got the ok for a 1906 house yesterday. After 4hrs of fun I dug up 3 silver dimes (1 merc & 2 Rosie's) 6, I believe foreign coins (Japanese?) some kind of jar lid? and a 10¢ trade token. Any info on the token would be great. Thanks in advance and for looking.
The Whitesboro token is listed in Chadwick's OK token book, but with no historical information. Interestingly, only the 10¢ denomination is listed - typically a general merchandise store would have a "set" of 5¢ through $1 and possibly other denominations. General store tokens were at the peak of their popularity 1910-1930. This piece is also listed on tokencatalog where an image is wanted. I'd ask that you post your pictures there, or with your permission, I could post them.
