Silver Ring and a Heart Stopping Coin
5 Attachment(s)
Loving a site Iíve been on a few times, tons of clad, a few old coins, jewelry and odds and ends from the time this was a farm before itís public use. That and the tons of pull tabs and bottle caps are helping me learn the new ORX.
Today I got in a couple hours in the sunny field and temps in the 40ís.
The first nice find was a sterling silver ring with a black stone.
The heart stopper was a penny sized coin. I was wiping it off to see if was a wheat and an eagle popped up. Now, Iíve heard of a flying eagle cent but would not recognize one, but when I saw the eagle on this coin I got very excited, but on turning it over I read the words ďfor replay only No cash valueĒ
So itís an old arcade token. Seems to be old but I cannot pin down a date on initial searchís.
Iíve found the old buttons below on separate searchís. All seem older. (Silver dime for size reference found there as well)

Looking at the headstamps I found today and see this one is older than others found there.

Hey...nice diggs! I love finding unique tokens. I have a pretty good collection of rat tokens. And rings are almost as good as pull tabs...:)

Congrats on a very nice sterling ring, Rosie and a cool token. Nice assortment of buttons as well. I have dug similar tokens and when I saw the eagle I thought I had my first seated or capped bust. Nope, still looking. Nice hunt. Mark

I have found a couple of the "No Cash Value" tokens with the eagle. Apparently they were used in video game arcades. So not very old. They sure look cool though.

I've found eagle no cash value tokens before but not like yours. It has a vintage look to it for sure. Nice hunting!

Sterling and an old 10 gauge butt, cool!

Same here and agree it has a vintage look to it.

I remember those having monetary value to them as a kid. You could buy a kid's lunch off him for a few arcade tokens back in the day. Our local arcade was called, "Aladdin's Castle". When I say, "Back in the Day" I am referring to the 1980s haha.
