Some recent finds...

First, my oldest coin so far (no date on this but they were made from 1873-1888!)Its pretty beat up, but I could tell it was old from the style of leaf design. I naively asked my Chinese waiter if he could read it, and he was nice enough to humor me and tell me no...turns out its a Japanese coin.Blushing
   

Next is from my first coinspill - 3 sf tokens in one hole! 2 were the standard ones they still sell (to nonprofits and giving to folks getting out of general hospital anyway) but there was one that was older...turns out its "a streetcar token from the defunct Market Street Railway in San Francisco. The MSRY was an independent trolley company that operated from 1921 to 1944 when it was bought out by the San Francisco Municipal Railway. Samuel Kahn was its president, and his name appeared on each token."
   

Last, this is a spinner for determining the starting player in games...from a whiskey company.Not sure on date..assuming 50s.
   

Thanks for looking and HH as always!

Awesome finds. The park I have hunted the most was a trolley park long ago and I've never found a trolley token.
