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...

Yep, and being from the only colony... technically these could were actual currency at one point

I think you may have posted this in the wrong place. Those are awesome finds! Is that hammered gold?? You should repost this in its own thread for sure.
