Weekend Finds - 1949 Monagrammed Lighter / Silver Coins / Indians

Finds are from part of Friday and a late start Saturday hunt at some area city parks and researched old school sites.
The old lighter has a 1949 patent date and is the oldest intact lighter I have pulled.
Again like last week I got some foreign coins. The Japanese coin is a World War II era 5-Sen coin.
The other foreign coin is a 1944 Philippines 10 Centavo coin (I found a 20 Centavo last week)
The American Eagle arcade token had some good depth so I am thinking it is at least 1960s.
The small pin with the lady on it had very good depth so it must have some good age to it.
I believe the piece in the bottom right is part of an old Garter belt.
Also found was a Letterman's pin for basketball.
Mercury dimes are back to 1937.
Indian head pennies are 1900,1902.
18 Wheat pennies are back to 1912.
Nickel is 1947.
Another clad half is better than no half I guess.


Coils used where the stock coil and Tornado coil.

Great finds. I purchased a Tornado coil, and haven't had the opportunity to use it since we haven't had rain here in about two months. Your posts keep me interested in the hobby without getting out in the field. Keep 'em coming.

Thanks Dale. Very good of you to say that. I just really enjoy detecting and all the research that ties into it.
Hopefully I can get down south yet this year and get over a deep large cent :)
