    Here are a few more tokens I have recently added to my growing collection. I like tokens. They are fairly inexpensive and while a lot of them are common, they are interesting.

    These two are from the 2006 FUN show in Orlando Florida. The design it from a Feuchtwanger Cent.

    The 2 2006 FUN and the 2000 ANA all have edge lettering that reads, GALLERY MINT.

    This is dated 2000 and represents the Mercury Dime. It's from ANA's Wirld Fair of Money.

    This is a brass gold dollar and it has a date of 1864 for the time period when these coins were in circulation. It comes with a loop attachment.

    This is a double eagle dated 1854. At the top is the word COPY. This has a nice reverse artificial crack. It was produced by the Kellogg & Co.

    I'll be posting a few more at a later date. I purchased a neat small box of things that caught my eye and as I go through the box I'm finding it was a small gold mine. I'll not get rich but I am thrilled and that's better at times.

    I think the A.N.A. tokens design is odd to have upside-down words on the reverse face, going right to left.

    Is the loop brazed/soldered on after minting?

    No, it's dirty (toned) but it's all one piece.

    Sorry but so had to laugh at your humor. Maybe you will make it one of these years.

    Why would they put a pendant loop in a position where neither the obverse or reverse would be right side up?

    I have wondered that since I saw it.

    The one with the loop is actually a considered to be an American counter. Some of these were made with either one or two loops, and it looks like yours has lost one of the loops judging from the appearance of the rim above Liberty's head. I imagine the two loop varieties were used to make bracelets or other jewelry. Anyway, that counter's obverse is identified as "Liberty-690" and the reverse as "1 (1864)-815". That is the only reverse paired with that obverse. It has an R-7 rarity rating - between 10 to 20 believed to exist. My reference has a few years on it (copyright 1990), but in XF condition it was valued at $40.00.
