Monte- locations like what you're describing are very rare. It's awesome that you all have been able to consistently have that kind of success for decades.

I've had a few spots that have been amazing in the beginning but either "dry up" or become unavailable due to development.

Around here, the vast majority of tokens were made by the Salt Lake Stamp Co. The minimum token order for a merchant was 100 so, there's often a relatively small chance of surviving tokens for any particular merchant. (Especially for the smaller and now ghosted towns).

As you know, trade tokens can come in all kinds of sizes, shapes, and materials making the signals "wild cards" and a challenge. Combine that with the difficult & iron infested dirt in most ghost towns, it makes finding one a special deal.

Congrats to all of you! I know I'm the new guy here on the forum and the WTHO but it's been immediately clear to me that this is a group who really knows your stuff.

I've really enjoyed meeting you all.

Mike.

Joel, you should have given the Apex some serious hunt-time.

Joel, the so called 'Iron Audio' term is used differently, brand-to-brand.
