    That's a great token! Fun Fact: Almost all clock advertisements show the time as 10:10. This is because it is more appealing to the eye than any other arrangement of the hands! Thanks for posting and happy digging, Dave.

    That clock is a bit fast
    Is that token holed? Very nice looking!

    Yes, it is holed. I really thought it was a coin at first until I started cleaning it.
