  • 5 Cent Trade Token

    The snow is gone for the moment in Ohio so I made it out to one of my spots. Found a cool trade token in one area and flipped the little cobalt from another ravine. I think the token is steel and circa 1910. Pretty day and good to get out.

    Really neat finds. Token is interesting and I love blue glass bottles.

      Not steel. Some kind of alloy. Just a bit larger than a quarter. Thanks for the link and I can't resist blue glass.

        Probably the cheapest material they could get away with. I don't know anything about Trade Coins but thought that site might help you research it.

        Trade tokens/ commerce tokens are very collectable, not to mention sometimes fairly valuable. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
        And cobalt blue is my favorite colour of bottle.
        In life there are losers and finders. Which one are you?

          To think the value of a nickel merited a token... times change. Of course, I am old enough to remember penny candy.
