    Need some help figuring it out

    Hi everyone,

    Found a bent coin or token a few months back that I initially thought was a Chucky Cheese token until I started cleaning it the other day and noticed that it was a bit smaller than a CC token. The below pictures are after 1 day in Olive Oil. Going to leave it soak for about 1 month and see if any other details will reveal. I have no idea what this can be, but it was from the same site as the Civil War Store tokens I found recently. My buddy also found a Canadian 1/2 penny/token at this site as well. The other picture I am aware of what those are

    I don't know if they are oriented the correct way. For the size, it is between a nickel and a quarter. I would also like to know if there is any magical way to clean this or if this is just roasted.

    The first picture reminds me of a condor token with a scripted back but I don't believe they are that small the second picture is very tough to orient to see much very hard to tell where the built up dirt is or where the image starts. wish I could help more

    Glad to help with the ID Badgers, but it's only because I have one in even tougher shape and it took me 2 months to figure out what the heck it was.

    Great job on the ID!

    I think the date should be where the red box is.

    Thanks Tony - When I blow it up on my phone, it looks like 1850. Wouldn't surprise me for that was an old farm house on that site.

    Lodge Scent - I am bowing to you on this ID. Every couple hours I think, how in the heck did you get that? I know from what you stated above, which makes it even more impressive that you figured out your first one in worse condition.
