Neat. You have one of the the scarcer varieties. From Numista:


The Cracker Jack Mystery Club was started in May of 1933, offering persons who joined first with ten President coins found in boxes of Cracker Jack or Checkers, dropping the number to join to three then increasing the number to five coins later.

There are 31 presidents in the set from the first president, George Washington to newly elected, at the time 32nd president, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Grover Cleveland's coin has his two non-consecutive terms 22nd and 24th, hence 31 coins instead of 32 coins.

The Cracker Jack Mystery Club sent back to a member who joined a membership certificate and a little gift.

Also sent back to the new member was the number of coins or medals sent in with Canceled stamped on the back of the coin or medal.

Note: There are only TEN President coins that have the word CANCELED stamped on the back. These stamped CANCELED coins are harder to locate than the regular coins or medals.

The Cracker Jack presidential medals were issued toward the end of the production so they are harder to locate than their coin variety types.
