I've got quite a few too, not worth much as far as I know. There were so many produced.

I usually find them anytime i'm in the woods, they're about as common as pulltabs here. I keep a dozen or so because my parents collect depression glass

I think of those as glass coins. I have a half dozen or so now. I sold a bunch at a local auction a couple years ago. My total came to around 30 cents each. Some likely have a little more value than the common ones.
