White metal tokens and medals....Post them here
Sometimes they really don't receive much respect but I collect them for the amazing history behind them.
This one is from the Williamson Building in the late 1800's in Cleveland, Ohio. I'm from there and can never say no when I see a nice inexpensive white metal token. This is the size of a silver dollar.
If anyone wants to post their white metal tokens or medals, please post them. There are many so-called dollars also.
The WILLIAMSON BUILDING, which stood on Public Square, served as the monumental gateway to Euclid Ave. for over 80 years. This 17-story building was begun in April 1899, and was ready for occupancy on 1 April 1900. It was the tallest building in the city when constructed. It replaced an earlier, 4-story Williamson Bldg. on the site which had been built 1889-90 and damaged by fire in 1895. Both stood on the site of the old Samuel Williamson homestead.
Horse drawn wagons and pedestrians occupied the streets in this image of the building in 1910
