Default "I hope you find something really good"

Hunted a 1905 home today. Sat and talked with the homeowner on the porch for quite a while before the hunt. It was a good day. I Pulled a few wheat, a 1920 Canadien penny, a rosie and then showed her my finds. She was really surprised at what I found. Before I was going to hit the curb strip, she said " I hope you find something really good. " then 2 minutes later I found the token! I've never seen a plated patriotic token before?

Interesting Token.
Any idea on date???
I am guessing early 20th C based on the coins found.

It's a civil war era patriotic token. This home was built on the property that once belonged to the 1859 home that stood in front of it

That's not a bad curse to have. I haven't found gold in over a year and a half!

Thanks! It's all the coin, no bezel, the picture makes it look deceiving.

A fantastic find Jeremy in the Civil War Token. It is in pretty nice shape considering its age. Congrats on the Token, the Rosie and all the rest. Trapper
