Old Walker Half / Nickel And Dime Trifecta / WWII Silver Air Corp Pin / Gold Ring / Old Relics

Most of the finds are from a few Saturday day hunts at researched old schools and city parks fairly close to home.
2 of the silver dimes were found in a quick 1 hour stop in a small town Wyoming city park on a family trip with my wife and parents before we ran into a snow storm.
The 1918 Walker had so much junk around it that it read like an Indian head penny. I first thought it had to be a token when I saw it as the numbers didn't match a silver half at all.
The ring was found in the area of the 1903 dime and 1906 Indian penny so I know it is old. It tested >= 10K and <=12K gold.
The 3 ringer bullet, bale seal, old bar token and lipstick cases were from a 2 hour hunt at an old farm permission.
The bale seal is from Port Huron Michigan (Lake Huron) and could be as old as 1866. The Civil war era 3 ringer bullet appears to be a 69 caliber.
I have been after a WWII silver air corps pin for a while. It read like a faint Indian head penny @ 8 inches deep.
The Lone Scout Pin is circa 1916 - 1921. I found this one listed online as high as $95.
The old bell is a 3 petal style #3 / rivet style and could be as old as 1870s. The dinger still works once I cleaned.

Awesome haul! REALLY like the Air Corps pin. I've found silver wings before but not that style. Very cool. Congrats on scoring a gold ring as well. Love that Walker and it's been a long while since I've found one. Seem to only find Franklins of late. Great job digging it all as always. It definitely pays off. Best of luck on your next hunt. Hope your ground stays soft and unfrozen for a while. Greg

Thanks Greg, Yes that Air Corps pin was something I wasn't expecting. The gold ring read 12-24 at about 7 inches deep.
Hopefully it will stay nice for a while.

Thanks for looking. It is a good weekend hobby that gets me out of my office chair.
The fun is not knowing what will come up next.
