Mike, Glad to see Pa. was good to you. Where were you ? Congrats on the silver and an overall successful trip. I love those rail tokens, so far I have dug 3. I have seen or heard of many more found. All with a 1922 date, my theory is they were made to make up for the shortage of pennies in 22, as only 1922 D pennies and 22 Peace dollars were the only coins minted that year. Continued success and HH Mark

Hi Mark. Thank you Sir! Yeah, PA was better to me in time Detecting than CA has been! Hahaha. Was a great trip. Great detecting and great people. Such a beautiful and green state! We were in the greater Pittsburgh area. We did meet a guy in town who had found one of the train tokens as well, so yeah, apparently a lot were produced. His was 1922 also. Maybe that was the only year they produced them? Donít know.

Thank you Sir and HH!

Congrats on the nice assortment of finds! If you're from Pittsburgh, you are now truly a yinzer detectorist having found a Pittsburgh trolley token.
