    Gas station game token there is one for each province in Canada, A number of them have been posted in the recent months along with the ones I have.
    Alberta's provincial year is 1905, but this token was made in the 1960s, not in 1905. It is not a coin, i.e., legal tender, but a medal issued by a gasoline company during Canada's 1967 centennial. Such items do not usually carry much collector value. Figure a value around $5 US dollars or less, a little more if in top-notch condition. Other provinces also appear on these commemorative medals.
    They came in aluminum and bronze

    Thanks for the info, I had no idea what it was and figured it wasn't from 1905.

    I picked up these "so called half dollars" this week as part of a Heritage sale. They were a relative bargain in my opinion. It's a complete set of these issued by Charles Smith. More info is below if interested.

    Charles E. Smith was a Boston coin dealer. At the time Smith's medals were issued, the US Congress was putting the brakes on US commemorative half dollar coins. Smith may have believed he could fill a void in the marketplace by creating commemorative medals that were roughly the same size; Smith's medals were slightly larger at 32 mm in diameter to avoid running afoul of the US Government.

    The Battle of Lexington, the Daniel Boone, the Lindbergh, the Antarctic Expedition, and the Pony Express pieces were all originally issued prior to 1947. Whitehead and Hoag re-struck these medals for Smith from the dies they had used in prior years.

    I picked this up today - the Ron Landis 1796 Draped Bust Quarter Reproduction. Just one (they were sold in a set of 2 originally I believe). This is the closest I'll likely come to owning one of these beauties. landisqobv.jpg landisrevq.jpg

    Coin Club of Atlanta (CAC) brass, 8.6 grams, 32mm thin planchet, C/A

    Ha ha the CAC that was around in 1929.

    Doesn't look like they are around now though. There's a Metropolitan Coin Club of Atlanta in google but no Coin Club of Atlanta that I can find. Maybe Metropolitan was a name change from CAC?

    I like the dates too. 1929 was the start of the Great Depression. There was a great expansion of coin collecting in America because of the Great Depression and inexpensive coin boards. And 1974 was the year I started coin collecting.

    I believe that this one is right in @Circus wheelhouse.

    It is huge. It comes in over an ounce of silver at 37.5g and measures 43mm in diameter.

    I can't remember if I posted this one or not, but I recently found a second. Exceedingly rare local centennial token.

    Here's both .

    And my first Kettle token. This one is equally difficult to find in good condition.

    Over 200 years old.

    That is the standard size for the limited edition slot tokens and weight. only thing is the new ones are .5,0 older ones are .6 or .7 of an ounce of silver. The regular ones sell around here for about $20.00 and special subjects around $30.00.The insert hasn't been an ounce in a number of years. some on line sellers still claim they are an ounce of silver. they aren't
    This is from the ampex site
    Purchasing $10.00 Silver Gaming Tokens is an excellent option for unique Silver. These Tokens are a great way to add some collectability to your holdings.
