    I am looking at a token as a possible purchase 2A4156CD-4203-4FC8-AE0C-736FA41C747B.png and can identify the far right symbol as Christian Chi Rho (sp) and am trying to research the other symbols...but no success? This is a good luck token holding a penny.

    any thoughts?

    I have been sticking mostly to ancient Christian symbolism because of the Chi Rho but maybe I’m off?

    You know, often times (read: ALWAYS), when asking for help on an item, you'll want to provide a full image of both the front & the back (obverse & reverse).

    The reason for this is twofold:

    (1) Often, clues can be ascertained by other parts of the coin/medal/exonumia which isn't obvious in a partial pic.

    (2) This site in a numismatics haven - we love to see specimens in all their splendor, regardless of whether we can help on not. It verges on disrespect when only a partial pic is shown & help is expected.

    No offense intended. I actually collect "Lucky" coins/tokens, but there are so many, I can't get them all & enjoy seeing others.

    I agree with your assessment of the Chi Rho, but I have no clue about the other symbols. Perhaps another part of the token will help lead to an answer.

    Yes really! You're new here, but I see you don't understand & are not receptive. Did you read all of my response?

    No worries though, I won't respond to your future posts & I now have you on "ignore".

    Odd. I thought your reason #2 in reply #2 was a tad ironic, as in, hey, we collectors always want to see the whole thing. ;) So c'mon, @Justacowgirl , go ahead and post that whole thing, both sides ...

    Forgive us your highness!

    Wow, no wonder new people bail on this site. Looks like someone woke up on the cranky side of the bed this morning. I find this post extremely arrogant and condescending.

    Yes, you can put me on ignore, too if you want. Lighten up, dude...geez.
