EDSEL & ELEANOR FORD HOUSE

Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan

 

IMG_9442.CR2.jpg

 

3 wooden nickels from the 2016 Fairy Tale Festival at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House.  Edsel Ford was Henry Ford’s only child, the namesake of the car, and the president of the Ford Motor Company.  His historic home in Michigan is open for tours and hosts various events for the local community, including Fairy Tale Days for the youngsters.  I believe these wooden nickels were used as tickets for rides and games.  The bottom two designs are painted, and each coin will vary slightly in clarity and positioning.  The upper nickel is a standard printed wooden nickel.  The rear of all wooden nickels is blank.

 

Set of 3 in used condition.  The photo shows a representative set.  We have multiple sets, and yours will be similar.
