    Coins & relics.........

    Hunted an old vacant lot , and an old church. Got two wheats 1919 and 1946, a 1957 nickel, and a 1945 P silver war nickel, a cap to a gunpowder tin from the 1800's, a Civil War bullet, an old button, a lead seal, and some doo-dads.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Those came from reed organs. The kind you pump with foot pedals. They were quite popular instruments in the past. I have found dozens of them over the years.
