Found a few coins today. The 1901 is in great shape. The last coin I found thats in the pics. I had no idea about it. then after only a little research I found it to be from The Scovill Manufacturing Company of Waterbury, Connecticut produced around 1860. I can now make out what it says on the one side. "If anyone attempts to tear it down/ shoot him on the spot/ DIX. Great first day out since the thaw. The spot I got these from has produced a lot of Indians and large cents and is definitely a older 1800,s site.

You guys in the US are fortunate to have many tokens that were produced in the 19th & 20thc. :hello2:
I'd spend hours researching these to learn everything about their history.

Love the detail on this hair clip too. :thumbsup:
