I paid a visit to my local coin dealer recently. He recently took in a Thurston Souvenir Coin and had set it aside for me.
On the "head" side is a bust of Thurston and the text "Thurston-Magician". On the "tail" side is a scarab sort of figure and the text"Good Luck-1929".
It is approximately the size of a US quarter and appears to be copper.
Do any of you have any information on how these coins were distributed, or have any other information.
Steve V., who posts at Magic Talk, told me I would get more information at this site.
Thanks for any information.........
