special large cent
Quote this message in a reply
This is a sweet heart of a coin to me has lots of character. First lets look at the three holes I am thinking maybe button or possibly gambling token, I have heard from others that is what they did to some for slot machines?
Then what I really like is the three 7's stamped in again I am thinking gambling.
But I don't think I will ever  know for sure, what's you ideas.
This was found by the political token.

I don't know why it has 3 holes or those 7's, but that is an INCREDIBLE find, Steve!!! I'm sure you've pounded that area, since finding that, yes? If not, I think you need to. The 7's being there from a back room saloon casino would kinda make sense, but just a guess. I never found a stamped coin. That would make me VERY happy! Kudos Beer

Steve, I'm sitting here looking closely at those holes, and it almost appears as if someone shot them out with a BB gun, which I don't think they had in the mid 1800's, lol. Very strange. And then those 7's. A head scratcher, for sure.

Ya Joe have hit this spot many times, and it still produces a little bit once in a while.
Normally I don't post to many finds but I will post some more of the stuff I have found there over the years. Seeing that I cannot get out for a while Have found coins to gun parts, Buttons, pipes, rings., etc.

That is a great find Steveo! I don't know about the gambling part of it, but could it be a coin converted to a string whiz toy? You know, thread a loop of string through it, spin the string tight and then pull each end of the loops to make the coin spin in the center. Just a guess but a fabulous find. Have no idea what the 7's are for.

That's an awesome coin. I'm sure it could tell some stories. If only coins could talk.
