packrat-pl…
(261 items)

Here is another item I dug up metal detecting.
It appears to be made of copper, is a little smaller than a quarter, and it looks like it says 25¢. The thickness is about that of a quarter and just does not look like a token. If I remember correctly, this was another Ft. Sill, Oklahoma find from many years ago.
Any ideas?

    Hi, packrat-place! I'm going to guess, and I will be wrong, I expect. Could it be a brand for cattle?

    AR8Jason,
    Thank you very much. Your input is always appreciated.

    Hi, AR8Jason. Does the fact that this seems to be slightly convex, and that applying it as a price-stamper might involve applying it in rocking motion and/or on a somewhat yielding surface suggest anything more to you? Thanks!

    Thanks so much! Very interesting. I never heard of a date nail marker for Railroad ties.
