    Description

    Lucky "Pennies." An impressive run of these inexpensive tokens which are reminders of fairs, expositions, and business promotions throughout the decades. A small group of (8) Indian cents are included, dated from 1890 to 1907. A curious item in the Indian cents is a 1905 cent that appears to have been fused to a cog-shaped surrounding collar, then chromium plated, and holed for suspension at the top. Also, a 1905 "Sou-veneer" from the Lewis & Clark Expo. has a wooden collar surrounding. (6) Lincoln cents from 1909 through 1920 are included as are (7) pieces dated 1921 to 1938. The remaining are dated from 1940 to 1965. Three of the most interesting pieces are a 1916 Canadian large cent from Calgary; a 1949 Canadian small cent; and a 1905 Portland Fair token with a six-pointed star cut out of the middle, the piece resembling a sheriff's badge. And remember, "Keep Me and Never Go Broke."
