medal/token

Tokens | Mr. Wheatie

Does anyone know if there is any value in this piece? I'm not sure if it would be considered a medal or a token.......If I had to say I would guess that its a token since it has a trade value of $1.00 at the 1974 World's Fair. I just don't know zilch about this sort of thing. My Dad gave it to me in a small box full of world coins and a few semi-old American coins.

Who knows. There might be someone out there just collecting those tokens. Other tokens like conder and civil war tokens carry great value just check eBay.

Tokens don't have much value. They are only worth what they are worth to you.

I would say this is definitely a "Good For" Token. Nice story to go with it too. Value on this is always tough to say. I would guess $.25 to a generic coin dealer if you what to sell or $3.00 if you wanted to buy from that same generic coin dealer. But I have found the tick to higher price is finding a “highly interested” buyer. That might make it worth $8.00 to $10.00. And with that comes the dilemma “is finding the buyer worth the effort!! Enjoy owning the token and have fun!
