Thread: Past Few Hunts Yield Some Goodies

    Cool Past Few Hunts Yield Some Goodies

    Hi Folks,

    It's been ages since I've posted. Mainly it's due to the fact that I haven't really found anything worth posting.

    Anyway, these are the spoils of the last few hunts. The first is a 1935 Buffalo nickel and 2 silver Rosies. (The dimes were in the same hole!)

    The token and button are from yesterday. The token is from 1868 and looks like a large cent. Anyone who might know more about it let me know. It says Greenleve Block & Co. from Galveston, TX.

    The other, I'm told, is a Civil War Infantry cuff button.

    I nabbed a 1902 Barber and a 1870 Indian Head penny from the earliest hunt in the summer.

    Hope everyone has a great hunt!

    Nice to see a post Snapolson. Those are some pretty cool finds especially that token from TX. I think that is what is called a store card??? I think the date of 1868 puts it out of the Civil War dates. Some of them are worth some nice $$$'s. Thanks for posting
