Two bucket listers in one day!

Howdy I had a great outing and found my first V Nickel and a token to boot! The nickel was about three inches down goes to show that old coins don’t have to necessarily have to be deep. I can read a 6 as the last digit on the coin making it my very first coin from the 1800’s! I also found a Barber dime of which I cannot discern the date yet. But the token is my first and I can read 10 on it. Don’t know if it’s 10 cents or 10 dollars nonetheless I’m happy with my funds ( early Xmas gift to myself) I also found this button. Don’t know if it is military

Any advice on how to clean these coins and token and button would be appreciative

Can’t wait to get back out there again!

Nice finds they made the V’ s up till 1912 it could be a 1906 well up to 1913 but you will never find one of those...

Thank you Mkus those are hard to find I see. It took me a while to discern what it was because it is well worn.

Thank you Roy I’ll take your advice! Does that also go for the silver dime as well?

Congratulations on 2 FIRSTS in one day, Explorer.se! Your token looks like it is copper or bronze - try soaking it in virgin olive oil for a week or 2 and then use a soft tooth brush on it.

That's really exciting to dig 2 "firsts" in one day! Way to go! Best of luck and ...

Happy Hunting!
