THIS is why I love this site, VERY informative, thank you
The weight if it would have made it go better i'm sure.
Now you got me wanting to dig through cull boxes looking for holed large cents with saw teeth at flea mkts
Check this out.
You ever play with one of these? We did when I was a kid, and it was a lot of fun.
Probably too dangerous for kids nowadays, they'd smack themselves in the head and the parents would go to jail.
Yes, but buttons that big were the fashion in the late 1700s. By the mid-1800s, they had gone out of fashion. So I suspect this coin was indeed a buzzer toy. But had it been a dime with two holes like that - or even a small cent- I'd think button.
Which is not to suggest there weren't buttons made from large cents. There almost certainly were. You could very well be right.
Buzzers also tend to have the holes more widely spaced than two-hole buttons, I think.
We used to get it going real fast and then touch the others skin when they weren't looking so the friction would burn them a little. And no my parents aren't in jail because of it
yes I played with one also made from a large button but got a thrashing when I got too close to my sisters hair..oops
Then again, you never know, considering the recent fidget spinner fad...
