Boblo Island Amusement Park? token
« on: September 29, 2020, 07:48:14 PM »
The following token was on sale at the auction:



(с) : 1888 LIBERTY HEAD ENCASED NICKEL LESTER J. GLADIEUX, DETROIT MICH For auction is this 1888 Liberty Head nickel that is encased in an aluminum ring, with Lester J. Gladieux and Detroit Mich imprinted. I'm not sure, but I suspect this was from Boblo-Island Amusement Park, which opened in the Detroit River in 1898.

I wonder if this token really belonged to Boblo Island Amusement Park?

What particular picture? The first message has an obverse and a reverse.

Hmm .. I inserted links and two pictures are displayed in the "google-chrome" browser, but it turns out that they are not visible in other browsers .. Strange, this is some kind of overlay. Then I just, instead of the inserted links to the pictures, attach the photos from the archive to the message:

This is a fantasy token made up of a metal-typer souvenir combined with a nickel coin!

See my page here which shows several of the metal-typer souvenirs and the DIY machine that makes them.

Yes, I see. I am wondering if this token refers to Boblo island?

I think there is something in the forum settings that prevents you from seeing the pictures. Probably need to fix something. My first post in this thread is displayed with two pictures:

I have already explained this is not a token as its a fantasy made up by someone as a souvenir.

It has nothing to do with Boblo island or anywhere else.
