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.

Hahahaha. Somehow Tapatalk put this reply in your thread. It was actually supposed to go in the wheats per silver post. But youíre right, it is a good curse

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

Usually if someone says that to me itís an instantaneous curse and I go home with a PFOF. That doesnít seem to be your case,however...
I havenít seen one either,thatís pretty damn cool.

Nice hunt! I'd be happy as a clam (where'd that expression come from and what does it even mean?) with those finds from a single outing. Great finds!

Thanks Trapper ! This token is the nicest CW era token I've put my coil over compared to the few other I've found.

Most of the time I have the same curse, today was different, and I was sure glad it was.

Thanks ! Good question and peaked my curiosity , so I looked it up. I guess from what I read "happy as a clam at high tide" was the original expression. When the tide is high , clams are safe from predators

It definitely looks like a pressed bezel rim on it. Is it a spec bigger then a normal one? Not that it matters. Its a awesome token.
I've only found one.
