Big Silver and Big Tokens

Well-known member
Finds are from hunts over the last 3 weekends. All finds were found in researched public sites with my Minelab eTrac. Coils used were 12x10 SEF and NEL 13x14 Storm.
I managed to run into a half dollar each of the last 3 weekends. All the halves were found at different sites.
I had great luck running into all the merchant tokens. They were found at 4 different sites. All of the tokens except for 3 small ones, the Captain Midnight
token and the half dollar were pulled from an old city park in Minnesota. That park masked a lot of targets as it was very junky and full of iron and lead pieces.
The small brass 5 cent token was pulled at an old school site.
The larger aluminum Good For 5 cent token was pulled at a very small town city park fairly close to my parent’s farm during a visit a couple weeks ago. This one is a rare token because the town is so small.
I have pulled numerous tokens there for that merchant over the years.
The ‘heart’ design buckle was pulled from an old railroad park.
A strange find is the metal tube that looks like a cigarette. I was told it is a Pot pipe. Also a strange find is that miniature old spoon clip or pin.
The heavy duty DeWalt utility knife was a surface find.
Thanks for taking a look!

Thanks Ron. It was tough to keep it up through the heat. My wife bought me a Yeti cooler for Christmas and I have been making use of it.
