    Couple hunts - One school and a park

    Went to a torn out parking lot and found the Andrew Zinkl token. Haven't been able to locate this one yet.

    School property -The toasted civil war hard time token was 1 of 4 found in one day!! One of my friends continued down a line that I was going to go on and got distracted. I was literally 3 feet away from 2 more, but glad he found them. The one I found and the other one were about 100 yards away. Theirs turned out nicer than mine. I am glad I was able to get it to this point. THOS. FALVERY reapers and mowers. Racine WI. Front is Union at top and 1865 (5 digit is hard to tell)

    The medallion was found in a park at about 5" down. Banging signal. It is a religious Mother Mary. Told my buddies this could be a throwing star. The points were quite sharp. Looks to be era 1940s would be my guess. Haven't been able to find that either yet. I thought it looked Maltese in shape or German cross.

    Time for me to get a new phone. Cannot get a good zoom on this one. Sorry about that.

    Some nice keepers there!
    I love finding the old trade tokens and the CW tokens are even nicer to find! They don't pop up very often around here!
    Nice digs!
