Finds are from the last 2 weeks or so since my last post. All finds were made at city parks and old schools.
My favorite find is the fully intact cast lead toy gun I found yesterday at a school. I haven't been able to find much info on it yet but it must have some age.
The 1940s Storz Beer spinner token was also a neat find for me.
Yesterday was a 4 silver day ending with a 1934 Merc and a 1936 Buffalo in the same hole.
Last weekend I also got a pocket spill with 4 wheat pennies, a silver war nickel and a mercury dime in the same hole.
It was a very good weekend for tokens as well. I also pulled the small sterling silver ring. It sounded like an Indian head penny @ 6 inches deep.

Coin Finds

Silver Dimes are 1934,1945,1945,1953,1961
Nickels are 1936,1942 (silver war nickel),1945 (silver war nickel) 1946,
29 Wheat pennies are back to 1913
Chinese cash coin (1736-1795) (Found at the small town high school I graduated from in 1986)
1947 Canadian penny

Non Coin Finds

Small cast lead toy gun
Small sterling blue stone ring
2 good for 10 cents in trade MT cutout tokens
Good for 5 cents small town merchant token
1940s Storz Beer Spinner token (Storz is a beer company in Omaha, NB. Company was operational from 1876-1972)
Yellow Cab $1 off $5 cab fare token
Old broach or buckle (was deep. Approximately a foot deep)
Part of an old makeup compact.
Other misc. jewelry pieces, etc..

Great digs Dave! I enjoy digging old tokens as much as silver and you dug some nice ones there. Keep it up!

Great finds Dave. Really like the lead gun. I have something very similar that I found years ago. Mine was more flat though. Always love your tokens and I'm like Super Dave, I like them as much if not more than the silver. HH and GL Greg

Thanks Greg,
I like finding a mix of stuff like that. That lead gun has some weight to it.
1960s - 1970s I believe. It is a miniature Beretta pistol
