Token: US Blake Gold Replica (Counterfeit) 1855
Blake and Company was a legitimate gold assayer in Sacramento, California during the famous US gold rush of the mid 1860s. They produced gold bars between 1855 and 1858.
Chrysler Corporation used the Blake name to mass produce these spiffy gold-colored medallions as part of a promotion for their Gold Duster model in 1969. You can buy them on eBay for a US dollar or two.
