Hi, I just joined and am pretty new to detecting. I did have a question about a souvenir I found in an old box. Any clue to its origin, other than NY World's Fair, and a possible value? I know it's Bronze.

it looks like a commemorative of Lincoln's Presidency probably 100th year anniversary from the 1964-65 New York's wold fair , that would be my guess.

Listen to Dan, he knows, he's been around the block a few times. He remembers the civil unrest of the 60s....the 1860s! lol Jeesh.....where did that come from? Actually, I think I'm older than Dan, but he looks like he is 20 years younger. Nice box find though.....I found a reptile in a box once...turned out to be a box turtle lol Okay...I'll stop now. Glad you joined us and hope you are getting out and making some finds. :waving:
