I have this but in a silver finish that is tarnishing. It was in my father's coins and he died in 1983. was there an earlier edition run? - Leo
Hi Leo -- This token was probably minted somewhere between 1960 and 1980. Yours may be silver plated, but it could be solid silver and worth its weight in silver. Take it to a jeweler and have it tested for silver content. I do not know of any silver tokens like this, but there's a lot I do not know. Maybe there is a silver version. - CoinQuest (Paul)
