    Being that it was run over by that train, I'm almost positive that it would grade PF90. ~ Chris

    Nice. I still have one I put on the track that my dad or grandpa ran over in the 1950's. Both were yard engineers at the time. Train Penny Rev.jpg Train Penny.jpg Do you keep yours?

    @alurid
    Hard to say Strasburg Rail Road no. 90 (ex: Great Western) is a 2-10-0 "Decapod"
    So at least the first wheel as I have no Idea when it fell off the track.
    On side is very thin about 0.4 mm the other appox. 1.0 mm

    No, not PMD, but rather PTD or post train damage. LOL

    It pretty cool that you know that train # that made the modifications.
    I have several RR tokens, But none of them are attributed.
    The first coin I ever found metal detecting was a RR token cent, found less than 50 feet from a unused spur line.
