    Not much, but I like it a lot!!!

    Out for about 6 hours this weekend. First hunt was the CW store token/card. This is my 4th one ever and second from this site. My friends and I each have 2 (6 total) at this site. I am slowly cleaning this one for I don't have a lot of patience and know my limits when it comes to cleaning finds. Front states Groceries Provisions & Dry goods. Back is for a store in Milwaukee. Joseph Fischbein. Act 315 West Water St. Milwaukee WIS. Totally stoked!! These come out of the ground like angry IHP signals. Sounds like a loud IHP. Guessing it sounds like a fatty IHP.

    Great find! I love finding those CW tokens and other items from that era, probably because they are so rare in our area.

    As a side note, they start the tear out of the street between our brewery buildings on Monday. The street dates back to the early 1800s when the city was first being more heavily settled and just starting to expand away from the lakefront. This 1.5 block or so length of city street used to be one of the more traveled in the area until the freeway cut through the city in the early 70's, and it became mostly a short side street to nowhere in particular, and then became a private gated roadway. There's a few underground sewer pipes and utilities that probably date back to earlier times and have been updated a few times since with brewery expansions, but I'm hoping for some really old finds. Of course this depends not only what's under the pavement, but how deep the crews dig down to get access to what's under the gravel roadbed. Just hoping they don't cheap out and go for a simple scrape and fill because honestly, besides the goodies lurking underneath, the road is in horrible shape-poor grading and a base that is washing away underneath the blacktop making for some deep sinkholes.
