A Variety Of Old Coin, Relic And Jewelry Finds

Finds are from 3 outings over the last 2 weeks or so since my last post.
All finds were made at researched old public city parks and schools that I thought had a chance of still holding some old deep targets.
A couple of my favorite finds are the AAA Patrol Service Badge Pin and the native American design copper bracelet.
The milk token is also an item that doesn't come up very often. It has the older 4 digit phone number on the reverse.
The old copper cover with the wheat bundle and plow must have good age. It has a lead back on the cover. It was pulled at a railroad park.

1943 Silver Quarter
Silver Mercury Dimes are 1923,1927,1942
Nickels are 1890,1928,1940,1943 (silver war nickel),1957

26 wheat pennies are back to 1911. Note the home made scratches made on the one 1912 wheat penny.

Very nice finds Dave! Really like that milk token and the copper bracelet. Friend of mine found an AAA badge just like that last year. Very cool find and awesome to see coming out of the hole too. Not sure what that copper cover is but it definitely has some age. HH and best of luck on your next outing. Greg

Another great bunch of finds Dave! I always look forward to having a peek at your latest post.

How many hours hunting (sweeping coil over the ground) do you think you have between the 3 hunts? In general, my hunts times are usually a couple hours apiece with the exception of a road trip here or there or hunting when I get a day off.

Hey Thanks Greg.
Yes, those copper bracelets and milk tokens don't come up very often.

Thanks Rich,
Yes, I try and get some good close ups as my parents on the farm have email now and like to see what I find.
I would say this post has about 15 hours swing time in it.
