Default Hyvis Motor Oil Token and a Handful of Wheats

I am just getting around to posting my finds from this weekend. I didn't find any silvers this weekend but did find a cool Hyvis Motor Oil token and 11 Wheats. This is the second Hyvis token I have found this year. Both where found in lots about a half mile from each other. I haven't been able to find much on the Hyvis Oil Company but think the token is from the 30's or 40's. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Of the 11 wheats I found my oldest of the year a worn 1911. Also found a few other things and a little over $10 in clad.

I also had to send in my ProPointer to Garrett because the power would not turn off and wanted to thank my friend Greg (GStout76) for letting me borrow one while mine is in the shop. Jason

Buzz, thanks for the link to the newspaper ad from 1929, that was pretty cool. It helps confirm that most of the info although it is not a lot that Hyvis was primarily around mostly in the 20's and 30's and went out of business sometime in the early 40's.

Thanks Gonehunting! Tokens are one of my favorite things to find and it was sort of weird finding a second Hyvis token in a different location.

That motor oil probably went into a Velie motor vehicle?? See my post today. I love digging up old stuff. It's not always the Silver's that make me smile. A token like yours would have been nice.

Keith, you a probably right and that was a nice medallion you found. Silver is always nice but a historical piece is rewarding because you can always learn from them.

I found one of those oil tokens last year in a local park. I made a post when I found it but I'm not sure of the date.
