Question old rare Lincoln token

Ok I found this token at old resort/park area in Bucks County. I was in woods near old tennis courts according to old maps we found at local library.

I also found 1944 Washington and few wheat penny(s). My buddy found sweet seated dime on the same property.

The token is made of copper and whats the best way to clean it up. is it valuable?

I wouldn't clean it. Could you upload a picture of it please? It probably is worth quite a lot based on what 1860 or 1864 Lincoln presidential tokens are going for on ebay.

I would suggest leaving it as it is until we can see a photo, then we can advise from there.

If you have a cell phone get Tapatalk.

Its very easy to upload a photo with the mountain picture icon thing.

Then you can still edit it from your pc

It it were me, and I were you, and you were me, LOL, I'd soak it in some mild soap and water. This way the token won't become pitted.

I found a small token on a farm, the size of a penny, and copper with Andrew Jackson's bust on it. He might have gone through Michigan handing out tokens which is about the time the farm was settled.

I suggest you crack open a cold beer and think about this some more.

While that is cool, it is not from the election.
You can tell because it has the dates he served on it.
