Shield Nickels / Dime Trifecta / Indians / 1930s CCC pin

Since I am on holiday vacation I took advantage of the nice stretch of weather and headed south a few hundred miles until I hit diggable ground and hit some old city parks. Finds are from a two night trip.
I recently bought a new Etrac and was anxious to try it out. My loyal old etrac still works but I figured it was time to keep that one as a backup as it is pretty beat up and has a few quirks.

Nickels are 1867 (stars with rays variety), 1868, 1926.
Dimes are 1892,1918,1918,1942,1944,1946,1963.
Indian head pennies are 1890,1896,1898.
Wheat pennies are back to 1911.

CCC pin is a 1930s depression era Civilian Conservation Corp Pin.
I'm thinking the long ornate pin is very old as it was close to the 1868 shield nickel. It was an odd numbered low tone but I chased it as it was about 8 inches deep.

Also found was an Oklahoma tax token, an older brass amusement token and a Brass Girl Scout Pin.

I will be posting my year end finds in the next couple days.

Those are some awesome finds there - way to go! Were most of these coins deep or co-located with trash? You consistently pull the goodies either way! :bouncy:

Hey Thanks. Yes most of the old finds were next to iron and were partially masked/tight signals as the old parks I hit had very little obvious high tones and took a lot of patience and slow controlled swinging to hit something good. The old coins were 6-8 inches on this trip. I did get 2 Indian head pennies in the same hole which was a nice bonus.

Thanks Mark! it was a good break from the snow and I hit a nice stretch of weather.
I just ordered some 8 x 12 Shrink Wrap bags for my new Etrac. Gonna try that method as I don't want this machine to look like its been through a war like my old Etrac.
I had just put an $18 screen film I ordered on my new etrac and it fell off the first day I detected a few days ago when it was windy. what a waste of money that was.

Lots of great finds there! Love those shield nickels, those don't come up very often. The CCC pin is cool with some neat history behind it. I found a CCC token a few years back. Looks like your new machine will treat you well.

I really like those shrink wrap bags. Their are easy to put on and I change mine 2 to 3 times a year, plus they are dirt cheap.
