Default Seal of the Confederate States of America

So I went out to hunt at a park in the old but "not so good" side of town. After about an hour of finding nothing but trash and clad, I gave up. Went curb hunting down a street only a half mile from my house and found a few fun things...

First off I found a ring. It rang up a solid 28 on the Nox and it was at least 8 inches deep. It is standing on edge in the top center of my pic. No markings on the inside of the ring...

Also found a Multi-Pistol cap gun. Come to find out, it was part of the Topper Toys Multi Pistol 09 1965 set. The little pistol fit in the hand grip of the larger pistol. Found a pic of the set online. Added it below..

Then I found a token with the Seal of the Confederate States of America on it and it is the Cherokee County Alabama centennial commemoration coin worth 50 cents at any business or bank before May 3, 1961. Found in Jacksonville Fl. That's kinda odd.

Added an image of the Confederate Seal I found on Wiki to compare it with.

It was a bit of a haul and risk to go to the park in the "not so good" side of town. And I had a lot more luck and fun just a hop, skip, and a jump from the house. Should have done that first. I found all the good stuff in front of just one house. Still have about 5 more houses on that block to go when I get a chance to go back.

Really Interesting Finds buddy !!

I "Think" that during the late 50's / early 60's these Commemorative coins Celebrating the Centennial was a thing for the Counties / States I found a Very Similar one for Ashland Oregon .. Home of the Annual Shakespeare Festival which is 20 minutes or so from me.. Same working on the back.. different dates of course

Damn things ring up pretty sweet !!

Love the Assortment of Finds you made !!!!!!
