    Thumbs up Look What We Found

    My mom was going through some stuff the other day and she found this coin. Take a look...

    The Front:


    The Back...


    My mom has no idea when she got this. From the coin I can tell it was sometime when the subs were still running, before Mickey's Toontown Fair, and during the time they were using their old WDW font and logo.

    I thought it was cool and that's why I wanted to share it with you.

    The first thought that came to mind was, "How Much?" haha. That's a great find. I actually remember seeing one of those in person years ago, but completely forgot until now. Thanks for sharing!

    Wow, that is really cool!

    I really like how the back is designed and the detail there is, simply amazing!

    I wonder if it was supposed to originally be used for something or if it was a special souvenir. That is super cool, Adam!

    I really like it too. I wish there wasn't a big scratch on the front but it that was there when my mom found it.

    They're several of those coins on Ebay right now for sale. After I saw this one here I had to have one and bought one there.

    I bet you could get some polish and buff out a lot of that scratch.

    Brasso would probably work Adam, but any polishing might remove the dark patina shadowing used on the coin. Might consider rubbing black shoe polish on the scratch to blend it back in.

    Nice find! I have one of these also in my collection.
