Whizzers were fun as I recall from my youngest years, and some of the buttons we used worked well due to their size, shape of some, and they had the smoother-edged holes that didn't wear the string out as fast as the sharper-edged drilled holes in metal. The holes in that token were larger than what we used to use, but we also used thinner sting. The size of the holes and orientation to the big '50' made me think more in line with it being an ornamental piece, but it could have been a whizzer.

There sure were a lot of fun things we enjoyed as youngsters that most kids today just wouldn't understand.

Another successful day afield, but location can sure be frustrating.
