This is an old, pre-WWII good luck token. It has a swastika on the crystal ball, as well as on the other side (along with all of the other usual good luck symbols: rabbit's foot, wishbone, etc.) But this pre-dates the hijacking of that ancient symbol by Adolph & his gang of morons. It reads "The All Seeing Eye Guards You From Evil" on one side and "Good Luck Will Accompany The Bearer" on the other side. It's made of bronze and is approximately the size of a half dollar. I bought it at a coin shop a coupla years ago for $8.00. I'm not absolutely sure of it's actual age. I suspect that it may be a reproduction, but it might just be the real thing. If anyone out there knows about good luck tokens, and the origin of this particular token, I would really appreciate any info. Thanks for looking!

    I found one of these coins. Do people collect these?

    I've come to realize over the years that there are collectors out there for almost anything that exists

    So what did you end up doing with it? My dog found one for me today digging in the back yard.

    The 'all seeing eye' reminds me a bit of the Freemasons for some reason?

    This is kind of neat. I have fortune cards that came out of fortune telling machines with similar images. I know some of my cards were from machines in Boston and some NYC back in the late 20's and 30's. My mother was a college student back then and she loved the fortune telling machines.
