Well it finally happened folks! On November 25 at 10:30 PST I finally dug up my very first Indian Head Penny! I have taken the before and after pictures. I’ve also added another scalloped shape token to my collection. It is a Bentley and Bentley Cigar Token. I love this hobby! I don’t know if this other item is a token as well. I will need your help with that!

I believe the U.C.P & Co. tag is from the Union Central Pacific Railway - Omaha to California.

Here's a little info to get you started:

Love the scalloped token and congrats on your first, of many, Indian Head Cents...
