3 Legged Buffalo Nickel !!

Finds are from a partial Friday hunt and all day Saturday hunt with "Silver King"
I had a local coin dealer confirm the buffalo nickel is the real deal. A 1937 D 3 legged buffalo nickel ! I never thought I would get this rare coin.
It was found at very old school at a depth of about 7 inches. The 1934 buffalo was found at the same location.

The 1900 Barber dime had two nails next to it and was about a 7 inch deep coin. The 1904 Indian head was a solid 10 inch coin.
All finds were pulled with the NEL Thunder Coil.

Coin Finds
1900s Barber Dime
Nickels are 1920,1934, 1937 D (Three Legged), 1940, 1943 (Silver War Nickel),1953
Indian Head Penny is 1904
13 Wheat pennies are back to 1916
Canadian penny Is 1957


Non Coin Finds
Old Religious Medal (Displays "I am a Lutheran" on reverse)
1960s Replica of an ancient Greek coin

Small old hem weight
