Holloway 1858
« Reply #50 on: January 01, 2016, 08:48 »
Birdy, his family and I went camping over the Christmas break.
I was fortunate to find this Holloway 1858 token. Originally thought it was a penny but felt too thin.
It's a shame someone has drilled a small hole in it to wear around the neck
How do I go about claiming an award for this and the 1946 Florin I found?

We like seeing any Tokens found but Uncle Buck, the forum owner has removed that Award. Too many arguments over car wash tokens and similar items.

Amusement tokens. One side reads " No Cash or Trade Value." 
The other reads " For Amusement  Only". Uncertain of origins, but has been suggested by another Forum member, they could be arcade tokens.

TesoroSwinger, if you want to know more about the Peck Token have a look in the Resource section. The Token book is about a 25 Mb download and should have info on it.
