Found the remnants an old barn up in the mountains. Just a pile of rotten logs really. Lots of nails and trash but managed to find a few things. First was this A.C.M. Co. id tag. I believe it is from the Anaconda Copper Mining Co. which was nearby. I do not know what the tag was meant for, cattle or luggage or property of some sort. Next was this toasty Palmolive token. Nothing special there but I like tokens. Last is the bear sh!t and the reason I don’t wear headphones.

The Anaconda Copper Mining Company, known as the Amalgamated Copper Company between 1899 to 1915

Here's a sale and date range for the tag. Looking at the #'s yours has a lot more age.

Love those tokens! I don't know how you could hunt anywhere with bears. I about lost my mind when a coyote ran past close one day. Bears?? Nope.
