Finally, a Vale trade token and it had to be aluminum.sad smiley

April 22, 2020 05:33AM avatar
It has a deep groove from being it by a plow blade or something, and also some surface-eaten scars that an aluminum token can suffer, but at least it wasn't cut in-two. And it isn't a 'maverick' which we often find quite a few of. I haven't found a local token yet here in Vale, so it was nice to find one out at a ghost town. Gregg's found one or two and I think Joel nabbed one a year or two ago, so living here in Vale that was a find I've been hoping to make.

Part of the token is damaged or blistered (another aluminum token issue) so I can't easily see the initials. I believe it is: J. J. Prescott - Confectioner - Vale - Oregon - Good For 5¢ in Trade

I'll try to clean it up today and get a photo posted here later. Get some shopping done and enjoy a shower or thunderstorm later today, and rest up for another trip or two back out to that townsite. After today the beautiful spring weather continues. Just what I need to work my favorite detectors and coils. And I still need to break into the 1800's this year as well.

Monte

PS: I was using:

Nokta FORS Relic w/5" DD coil
-- 3-Tone
-- Sensitivity '99'
-- Disc. '5'
-- Iron Audio Volume '1'

Just my saved default turn-on settings.
