Thread: Fun New Token

    Fun New Token

    I found this token today while hunting with driftwood and his son. The token threw me a little because I couldn't find it in any token database. It is about the size of a silver dollar. I eventually found this advertisement in an April 1975 Illinois newspaper. I believe it's an advertising/goodluck token, but whatever it is, it's fun.
    Thanks for looking

    That is the coolest token I've ever seen! "Roistering hornets" is my new favorite term.

    Too funny. Someone must have had a tender rump when they found out they lost their cool token.
