I've often wondered:
If something is "one of a kind" how can a value be placed on it?

eh, like everything else, it's value will be based upon what a buyer is willing to pay

Canadian copper tokens from the 1800's, listed in books by Breton, Haxby and others, brought good prices a few years back when I sold mine, but no million dollars, of course. I was presently surprised at what eBay brought. This copper one with a duck or goose could turn out to bring a healthy sum from a small group of collectors on this planet who go ape over this sort of thing (maybe). What does it say on the back?

The "blacksmith tokens" are a small subset of the Canadian tokens and the rare varieties can go up into four figures in US$.

Maybe this is something that came in an envelope seeking money for some group promoting duck habitat and hunting? There is always some unusual and unique coin or token in a dealers basket, with nothing to say where it came from. It might be marked at 10 or 20 bucks.

Why don't you get one of those coin holders at a coin store and grade it yourself Will? People pay more for graded tokens.

Just keep in mind you're bound by a limited market like any other collectable!

Guys it's a gag thread, spun from some side talk in the workin man thread. I found the token about a year back doing a remodel, searched for something like it online to no avail. Irons jokingly said it could be worth millions, then Jayduba sent my dreams of grandeur asunder when he accurately named it for what it is. " A token that came with a fifth of copper goose wiskey".

Just goofin on the board a little.

Shipwreck is correct Will. Token collectors will pay for odd and hard to find tokens even if they are in bad shape.
Tokens that are directly linked to a time period and area can be really sought after. I have found a few local depression era bar, general store and dairy tokens (good for 1 pint) in lakes metal detecting.

My coin guy said to put them all on ebay at once since they all represent a small slice of NW Michigan and are all damn near 100 years old. He figures I'll clear $50-60 bucks easy.

"I would like information on Copper Goose whiskey It was available as of 40 years ago but I cannot find anything on it recently?

Answers.com® is making the world better one answer at a time.
I have the same question. In the mid-1960s, Copper Goose was being promoted in Little Rock, Ark. They had some dealings with my father's shop because I ended up with a copper token slightly larger than a quarter bearing a flying goose on one side and the following verse on the other: "Catch a copper goose Pluck a copper feather Next day will be better for health and wealth and weather." I have that memorized to this day, and I also still have the token somewhere. I was about 10 years old back then, so I never got a taste of the stuff, but I am still curious about the history of the product."

Your goose token represents a product that no longer exists, nobody knows anything about from a distillery that also probably no longer exists. And it's in great condition.
I'm seeing a win here sir. Proper marketing and you have an ebay rockstar!

Bottom line, it's worth moar than silver.

Is the bidding still opened? I have a gently used nail gun I bought from Harbor Freight about twelve years ago. Will trade, no guarantees on consistency of the gun.

That sounds like to good a deal LtD, why not offer just a strip of nails for the gun first.
