This fob is a bit larger than a silver dollar. appears to be made of brass/copper alloy. my son found it while we were metal detecting in Waco TX. I have not been able to find much on this fob. however the circle ginger ale Co. was started in Waco TX. but the founder joined the inventor of Dr. Pepper and become a partiner in the Dr. Pepper Co. so I'm guessing it dates back to the mid to late 1800's.

    Nice watch fob. Here is some information on the connection of the Texas Cotton Palace in Waco, Texas and the Circle A Ginger Ale Co. Maybe this fob was made as the plate was, to commemorate the 1910 reopening of the Texas Cotton Palace.
