A few of my recent finds

Here are a couple of my recent finds from swinging my F70. The war nickel I found this morning and pulled it from a depth of seven inches. This is my third silver coin of 2017 and all of them came from the same park. The "Good for trade" token was found yesterday from 3-4 inches. This is my very first barter token that I have found. I didn't realize what I had found until I got it home and ran it under water to clean off the dirt. What I find interesting are the three Ks on the back. I'm wondering if this would have anything to do with the KKK, or perhaps it's from the name on the front? I posted this on another site and everyone is telling me that this is unique because of the three leaf clover shape (most of these tokens are round). Also, I had one guy contact me and he attempted to look it up in some sort of database and he's never seen anything like it. Another person told me that trade tokens that are for less than ten cents in trade are from pre 1910. I Googled the name on the front and was unsuccessful in retrieving any information at all. This token was found in Genoa Ohio. Any help or input would be appreciated.

Neat one! Please let us know what you find out about it. Tokens in unusual shapes are sought after by collectors. I have never seen one like it.

That token is very unusual, I don't have a clue about it. Hopefully someone will give you some information on it and we all can learn something. Those war nickels are getting rare also, nice finds.
