Interesting little selection.

Can’t read the first one, but perhaps more because of the poor focus rather than the corrosion. I can at least see what looks like: ? E S ? R Y ? (or the R might be a K). It should be identifiable with better pics (and maybe some more cleaning).

The ‘HELL TO BE POOR’ item is an advertising piece for L. G. Daniel & Co, in operation from 1910 at 636 Tchoupitoulas and then from 1911-1913 at 641-645 S. Peters in New Orleans. In tiny letters at the bottom on both sides it should say “THE GREEN DUCK CO. CHICAGO” who were makers of all kinds of promotional and advertising items for many years from 1906 onwards.

The Jamestown item is, I think, not a token but a souvenir medallion. These turn up from time to time, but no-one seems to know much about them. Underneath ‘JAMES FORT / JAMESTOWN / VIRGINIA’ it says ‘SOUVENIRS INC’ in smaller letters, so my guess is that this was a gift shop item for visitors. The Jamestown Exposition of 1907 was held in celebration of its tercentenary but, if it was related to that, I would have expected it to say so.

The winged logo metal plate is modern. The letters are ‘DFC’ not ‘BFC’ and stand for “Depart From Conformity”, which was a fashion brand used by Advanced Trading Co. Inc. of California. First use of the trademark in commerce was 1992 and it was registered for “clothing; namely, shirts, tops, pants, shorts, sweater-shirts, T-shirts, jackets, sweaters, socks, shoes, underwear, rainwear, cardigans, hats, caps”.

The last item is a standard French ½ franc coin, struck in nickel from 1964-2001, before the adoption of the euro in 2002.

Hey red coat it’s a shot in the dark I’m just wondering if you may see something from a picture that I can’t see from under a microscope. On the bottom isNew Orleans. LA

And on the top I can make out for sure the “R” I’m a 70% SCU- - - -R

SCUVASTR Is what I can see on a maybe. Another thing is it’s not made of brass or aluminum it’s sort of made of pewter or Antimony.

You see where I broke it it makes me sick image-2020-10-04-09:43:05-795.jpg

A red coat I’m gonna try to get a little better view and a much better picture but before I do that should I put it in vinegar or olive oil it’s not a brass token. I appreciate your opinion so much you’ll never know
