    ....and since it's in the Lounge, it's a pretty fair bet it's not another gun..

    I don't always share things when I buy something (as in, never), but this is too cool not to share. Found on eBay, this is a Moorman Mfg (what is now ADM) token, "Salute The American Farmer" token from here in my home town, Quincy, IL. What's REALLY cool, though, is that it's from 1818, nearly 200 years old, and the VERY SAME year that Illinois became a state.

    Cool find!

    On a side note, I didn't know you were from Quincy. I know some people that live there and I live about an hour and a half from there.

    Depending on which direction you're in, we may stomp some of the same grounds, especially at PASA...
