    Cool 1939 New York World's Fair token

    Hi folks! It's been a heck of a long time since I've posted any finds... mainly because they were not worth posting and just life in general. But I think this find is pretty cool and worth sharing.

    I got out today for an hour hunt between errands and wasn't finding much of anything. But this pretty thing (the size of a half dollar) popped up. It's a 1939 New York World's Fair commemorative token for the 150th anniversary of Washington's Inauguration. Too bad the gold coloring flaked off mostly, but it's still an unusual find for me.

    Thanks for looking!
