Great Token Day / Another Standing / WW II Sterling Maltese Cross

Finds are from 2 half day hunts this weekend at a couple of close city parks. One park was formerly old housing.
The big 25 and 50 cent merchant tokens are from an area mercantile in the same town and the other 10 cent token was found from another town.
The 2 big tokens had great depth (9-10 inches) and the 50 cent was giving me close to half dollar numbers. They were about 20 feet apart.

The Sterling Silver Maltese Cross is from WW II era and originally had some award bar hooked to it ; e.g. "Rifle"
The back part of the big cap gun is from a late 50s early 60s "Pony Boy" Esquire model 250 shot cap gun. I looked for the other parts of the gun but they were long gone.
The silver plated baby spoon was also a fun find with some good detail.
The 1934 Cracker Jack coin blasted like a silver quarter @ 6 inches.

The worn Standing Liberty Quarter was about 7-8 inches deep and not a very loud signal at all. I thought it may have been a wheat penny until I saw the eagle.
Also found were 2 silver dimes (1942 ,1948 ) and a dozen wheat pennies back to the 1920s and a 1958 play dime.

Coils used were the Tornado and Stock coil.

Awesome pair of tokens. 50 cent ones are extremely hard to come by. You're lucky to be in an area that produces great tokens like that. HH

Thanks for the responses everyone!
I wasn't expecting too much being real close to home this weekend but kept grinding away with a slow sweep for a few hours as
I knew all the iron and threshold nulling had to be masking something good.

Thanks IDXMonster!,
99% Public sites. I have hunted one private house in the past 2 years. Old city parks, schools, fairgrounds top the list or any other public area that I have researched and I think can hold
some deep old coins and relics hidden amongst the iron or trash.
FBS on the Etrac and Explorers is very powerful and is tough to top.

Hey F.P.D.

Great finds once again. I will be heading out with Tony this weekend to hit a couple of parks I found on vacation and didn't get a chance to hunt.

With a little luck I hope we will have some good finds to post.

H.H. I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR NEXT BUNH OF GREAT FINDS!

Thanks Dale!
I have only made it to Iowa once in the past year and half but have one to send you from a couple weeks ago when I get a chance. I usually look on token catalog website but your book probably has
a lot more detail.
