Hi everyone. New to the site. I found this token in my backyard. It says "investors syndicate horseshoe division contest winner. King Merritt Month November 1939". I can't really see anything on the back of the token. I tried to find some history on it, but nothing showed up on the internet.

@mboth, first welcome to CCF. Second, I'm sorry that you are having some difficulty with uploading pics to this thread. Typically it is because of the size limitations. Consider running the pics through the free image optimizer (link below):

Also, to help you look for this token on your own, you should look at the tokencatalog.com website. I didn't see your token in a quick search, but you might have better luck with the token in hand.

With that said, this almost sounds like a medal rather than a token. In digging around on the interwebs, I can find this old postcard with a description of a King Merritt steer roping competition from 1925. Perhaps there is a connection?

I tried the image optimizer, but it tells you to "save" the pic after you get it to the right size, but I can't find the "save" button anywhere
