Default Old park

I made it out solo yesterday to the old park and found a couple tokens.
I did not find a single coin, but did add a couple more little bottles to the collection.
Happy Hunting everybody

I love tokens. I'd rather find a cool token over a silver coin!

Smile Old park

Looks like a successful hunt to me. Rather have the old tokens any day than clad or zincolns. Glad to see you are still having success on your outings. Happy Hunting !!!

They minted millions of silver coins but only few of these tokens & they usually tell a story of a business that was once there & is now defunct. Low mintage so you dont find that many. Great finds, congrats.

Nice finds! What is funny to me is I found a 1 1/2 Illinois tax token a few weeks ago in a field near my house. I had never even seen one before, and now I have seen 2!

Congrats on a fine hunt Matt, love the tokens, and good save on the bottles as well. I don't think I've ever dug a square token. HH Mark
