    I noticed the Elvis token shows him playing the guitar left handed. I checked online and there it says he was right handed and played guitar right handed. So what gives?

    I can buy them as cheap as 20 baht (about 60 cents US), most times a bit more. Many have images of monks rather than a Buddha image and come from individual wats, or temples. Material can be ceramic, copper or brass/bronze.

    I don't collect tokens but they often pop up in bulk purchases, more often modern tat but every now & then something interesting arrives.
    2 that I have kept -

    EUGEN SANDOW - cocoa company token - circa 1913-14
    A very interesting man who is considered as " the father of modern Body Building "

    Being from Nottingham, England this next token was not going anywhere so it is my only item from my local area -
