Underneath a clod of dirt


Recommended Posts

This started out as a lump of dirt/clay with just a slight color showing. The coin dealer of course gave it to me as it had to be junk since it was plastic.

Well it cleaned up very nice and only a slight discoloration. It really doesn't give much info, It could be part of a souvenir set from the castle, it could be some kind of play money. Just another pleasant surprise out of the junk box.

It's great when you get something for nothing or really cheap

I don't know if he is really such snobbish twit, about the tokens medals and other exonumia or the people that buy it. I stop by maybe once to twice a month and spend between $30. to $50.00 each visit. I also don't know if that is a pittance as far as sales go. Because as many times as I have been in there the only other people wanted to sell him Statehood quarters, the small dollars, or other face value items.

 

But if he is trying to make me feel bad he will have to up his game a whole lot, having been a clown for a long time and having worked as the bozo in a dunk tank. I had 7 seven old's give me a worse time :mf_napoleon:

Checked out your links some pretty neat stuff, you have!

It is listed as part of a play money set coins of the world by Topps gum. Further searching turned up this

 

1949 Play Coins of the World (120) These play coins are plastic coated with either brass, copper, or nickel depending on their denomination. There are three different denominations for each country which are 25, 50 and 100. The coins were distributed with either gum or lollipops. Size: 78 inch diameter
well the vacuum deposited top coat had long gone away.

That's neat. I think token collecting is a nice hobby and have been tempted a number of times to be more active in that area. I have a bunch of tokens but I don't go after them as such. Usually they come with other lots or folks that I know give them to me.
