Default Street railway token and .925

Went out today to an old high school that has been around for over a hundred years. First find of the day Amanda got a 1920 wheatie. I found a couple wheaties right after. The clad was all over, we snagged up $11.70 in an hour or so. Also dug up an old "Great Falls Street Railway" token from way back in the day. Decided to head home after another hour or so and I popped another silver ring! This ones marked "Ster .925" overall I'd say today was one of our best day's yet!

Thanks! It was the last dig of the day. Walking back to my truck when I picked it up can't think of a better way to end the day haha

Nice hunt! I really like that street railway token! And it seems like that school will be worth hunting some more - anyone who’s hunted it before left a lot behind!

Thanks! I like it too. It rang up like a dime lol. Little research showed it to be from 1890-1920. Definitely a fun find.

Thanks. Might do that one day. Don't get up to the north side very often.

Nice streetcar fare token. Earlier this year I found one local to me. It's one of my favorite finds.
