Cherry Hill, N.J. COLONIAL MOTEL Good For ONE PERKINS COURTESY BREAKFAST Token
(PERKINS Restaurant before they became large nation-wide chain)


@yellow88

I like the Colonial Motel token - it reminds me of roadtrips from a long time ago, many nights spent in motels, black and white TVs, and buffet breakfasts! I've been to Cherry Hill a few times (it's just outside Philly), but I've never stayed in that particular motel. There are many old diners and motels on that stretch of road, not sure if the Colonial is still there.

Although, I had been in remission from buying medals etc. I got an email on these from a seller and had a relapse but without regret.
Last time I dealt with him I bought a similar lot and got the leatherette hinged case with it for $5


I know some collectors, if not many frown on Franklin Mint sterling medals in our numismatic world, but mintages are low, in this series, 5292 each were minted of those shown below. Many of these were melted down during the silver boom of the late 70's.
The themes on some I find historically interesting, and the artwork is sometimes very nice too.

Buying them at close to bullion is not a terrible way to go for me. I had been buying a lot of paper lately and it just made sense to at least balance things and add more silver to the safe.



This lot will come in a case too, they hold 10 medals each which I have no trouble filling both up with what I already have. They do not match the particular box as a set but with these octangular capsules that these Franklin Mint coins come in, it makes for a nice storage solution. The cases themselves are collectible too.
My four medals are actually shown in this case here. The other 6 I let get by me.

@TNG - Nice looking set, ! And don't worry what (some) others might think - collect what makes you happy. I have a box of sterling medals, too; they're attractive and I like them!

Beautiful coins and case. It's a shame they have go into a safe. I hope they come out from time to time so you can enjoy them.

This 1855-dated token was struck privately in Boston, Massachusetts. The design is a reasonable copy of a contemporary Large Cent, dated 1855, with a modified reverse that reads NOT ONE CENT / BUT JUST AS GOOD.

Diameter is 27mm (about the same as a Large Cent.)

The issuing company was Currier & Greeley -- they apparently sold tea and coffee and other similar goods.

This token is a bit of an oddball: too late to be a Hard Times token, too early to be a Civil War token. To me, it's undoubtedly a store card, but that's about where my knowledge ends.

Known examples show significant wear and a large reverse cud, just as this one does; the wear may have been "manufactured" but the cud is likely unintentional.

At least one uniface token of like design with the same wording but a different and much more detailed wreath is known to exist, based on what I was able to find while browsing the Web (source: user "Broadstruck" @ CU Forums, who considers it a trial strike/pattern) -- it has a very large die crack through the right side of the wreath, but is a lustrous red-brown with little wear.

Attribution: Miller (Massachusetts) MA-30, Bushnell 23, Rulau-Fuld Cen-1B

That 1855 not ONE CENT is really neat. They all are.

Excited about this little subset completion tonight.
I had the Annie Oakley NRA medal Error reverse first, bought the Punt Gun to show the correct reverse and tonight after perhaps a more than one year venture, I finally picked up the correct Annie Oakley Marlin 39.

I posted these two earlier HERE
http://goccf.com/t/301479&whichpage=57#2765995
and again below. The new one is posted under those and is on the way.



Although, my gallery image of the error medal here says 4000, I am sure there are very few errors minted. The total mintage for all Marlin 39 Annie Oakley medals totaled 4000.


Ta-Da!
