Yes, the tokens are fun and extremely rare, of the 1 and 10 cent 5000 were minted back in 1935 for our only colony. Ive always been wanting one and now i have 2. Also found my first ever silver, a merc time and a war nickel along with 6 wheat pennies. I know that don't sound like much but it's rare around here

AWESOME tokens man, nothing like finding RARE local tokens! People don't realize how rare some tokens are, WAY more rare than any key date coin...
