I found a Cracker Jack Mystery Club coin the other day-about the size of a quarter and presumably aluminium. It had president James Garfield on the back side. I thought I was digging a quarter as it showed the characteristics of a quarter on the etrac. Anyone else found any of these?

1930's Cracker Jack Mystery Club Presidential Prize Token Coins These are not dated but they were used in the Mystery ''?'' Club Cracker Jack boxes of the mid 1930s. There were (3) different types of these made. On the back one type says ''Save This Coin'', another says ''Save this Medal'', and the third kind are marked ''Cancelled''. All of these are marked ''SAVE THIS COIN''.

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.

Hey Tumbleweed. I did find one a few months ago. Like you, I thought mine was a quarter as well. Still a good find. Congratulations
