Default golden anniversery Buick token

I found this a few months ago and threw it in my junk token box. It was dirty and I just decided to clean it up and found it to be made of Brass. So it cleaned up nice and I thought it was worth sharing.

WOW, That is an awesome token. Congrats. Tops on my token list is that V8 Ford 1903-1933 and then the Pontiac Chief of Sixes. Love digging tokens. HH Mark

Nice find! I have a bucket of stuff like that I'll go through when it snows. Actually looking forward to treasure hunting in the treasure box!

Cool! Buicks were built in my hometown of Jackson, Michigan between 1905 and 1907.
Iíve dug the Ford and Chief of sixes token but not the Buick.

It is always fun to take a closer look in "the junk box" When you can't get out to hunt for some reason a closer look sometimes pays off. Have a blessed day!

Wow, that sure cleaned up nice! I would never guess that was dug. Very cool Golden Anniversary item from long ago, when a Buick was a high quality automobile, and a thing of beauty! I did dig a Pontiac Chief of the Sixes token this year, but there is no hope of it cleaning up very well.
