This is an old commemorative coin my parents have had for years. It is quite large and heavy. I am not sure what to list this under. But it has stamped on it a train that goes to the top of Pike's Peak.

    It is a reunion souvenir for the 1905 National Encampment of the GAR in Denver. The Grand Army of the Republic was a fraternal organization of former Union Civil War soldiers established in 1866. It actually had considerable political clout in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
