Here are several more items I have dug up over the years metal detecting. The first is a token “Good For One Cake Crystal White Laundry Soap, Free When You Buy One Cake”, the Palmolive-Peet Co., Chicago.
Here is a little history to help date this token.
1926-Soap manufacturers Palmolive and Peet merge to become Palmolive-Peet Company.
1928-Colgate merges with Palmolive-Peet to become Colgate-Palmolive-Peet Company.
It appears this tokes was only used for about two years.
The other is a Bull Throwing Award. The reverse says, “Awarded to W. A. Miller In Recognition Of Your Natural Ability”. It appears to have been hung on a chain of some kind.

    Thank you very much for the nice comment Trey. Yes it is kind of interesting with the name engraving on it. Probably had a clasp and was attached to something you wore around your neck.
