Slot machine token dug in my backyard
Thought this was a penny until I got back inside and washed it off. A pretty cool token probably Great Depression era. Comes from a "trade simulator" called the "Liberty Bell." These machines would have sat on a counter in a store or bar and were like slot machines but paid out cigarettes, chewing gum, etc.
Pretty beat up, but it will get a mineral oil soak and we'll see what happens. Odd find, but my backyard has been yielding cool things since I started my excavations. (To the delight of my wife)
