A really good day!
Been working an older house I got permission to hunt by cutting her grass. Went there myself the first time and found a 1913 Wheat, 1905 IH, 1857 Upper Bank of Canada 1 cent token and a 43 Merc. I also found a cigar token. Took my son there tonight to finish up some areas that I did not cover and he pulls out a 1941 Walking Liberty Half. Moved on to a golf course that I got permission to hunt the fence line and got 8 wheats, 2 of which were a 1918, and a 1919S and a 41 and 27 merc. The ring and heart shaped pin were found by my son earlier in the day, both sterling. All in all a pretty good day since were going to go bass fishing and decided to go swing our e-tracs instead. Sorry about the picture size.

Nice coins. I like the two tokens.

I like the idea of mowing the lawn to get access to the old house, just hope you did not offer it to the golf course

Both sides of the cigar token are pictured on Richard's Token Database - TokenCatalog.com - it is listed in Vacketta's Trade Tokens of IL as Chicago F25, but it as an asterisk by it. That indicates "unproven attribution" so a bit more research needs done before this one really has a home.
