A Sawmill Token…

Yellow Pine Tram & Lumber Co

I don’t know why but I’ve been wanting to dig a sawmill token. I added it to my bucket list a few years back. This may not seem like a big deal if you live in East Texas but for me they are harder to come by in Fort Worth.
This year I had two opportunities to hunt a sawmill site in East Texas. On my second trip I scored my token. However, I didn’t find it at the actual sawmill site. It ended up
coming from a backyard 3 hours away. I had arrived in East Tx a day early and did a little yard hunting prior to the trip to the sawmill site. Incidentally, I didn’t find any tokens at the actual site but I will take one anyway I can get it.  This is a good one too. It’s from the Yellow Pine Tram & Lumber Co. in Colmesneil, TX and can be dated to 1893 or earlier.
