The swastika has been used in some recent coins from India. The negative association did not filter down there.

Native Americans used the Swastika as a symbol for earthy favour (luck) for several thousand years prior to the European invasion.

The Boy Scouts adopted the swastika symbol in the early 1900's. It appears in some of their literature, too.

One of the more commonly seen American swastika tokens, dated 1910, served as advertising for Excelsior Shoes which were worn by many a scout. These picture a uniformed scout on horseback.

The swastika has an extensive history. It was used at least 5,000 years ago and there are over a hundred distinct versions.

The word swastika comes from the Sanskrit svastika, which means "good fortune" or "well-being." The motif (a hooked cross) appears to have first been used in Neolithic Eurasia, perhaps representing the movement of the sun through the sky.

To this day it is a sacred symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Odinism. It is a common sight on temples or houses in India or Indonesia. Swastikas also have an ancient history in Europe, appearing on artifacts from pre-Christian European cultures.

In the beginning of the 20th century the swastika was widely used in Europe and America. It had numerous meanings, the most common being a symbol of good luck and auspiciousness.

However, .... (we know the rest)

There is also a conjecture that the swastika derives from the appearance of a comet seen head-on.

Swastika tokens usually predate the Nazis and were universally seen as good luck pieces until the Nazis hijacked and perverted the symbol.
