    I'm sorry, it was too long ago to remember. Probably in the sixties.

    Howdy AS,
    My oldest find was an 1800's V nickel, it is packed away so I can't get at the exact date. It was found outside of Auburn California and I was hiking out of an old mining works and noticed this slug from an electric box laying in the trail. Typical of me I picked it up and then saw it was a V nickel. Good luck with the survey...............63bkpkr

    Research and occasional field work
    2 roman bronze coins in a coin shop a block from the British Museum, handfuls of reals on Texas beach when a kid(actually cousin found) I just carried, then buried and lost half a bucket of another load(I was only 10) so I guess these don't count. Real find was 1870 french coin, near Horsehead Crossing in Texas.

    Oldest coin I found was an 1864 and 65 2 cent pieces at an old locks and damm site, found it randomly not expecting anything from the 1800s I guess an old home use to sit there.

    My oldest coin came from a park in New Orleans LA. It was a 1797 2 reale Mexico City mint. It was about 8-9 inches deep. I can take you to exactly where I found it too, it seems that I can remember where I found all my old or first finds i.e. first barber first seated etc.

    My oldest coin is a 1891 seated dime found about three inches dirt/sand in the playground area of a local school. It was so corroded, it came out brown and crusted so I thought I'd found a corroded Lincoln cent. It wasn't until that evening when I cleaned out my pouch that I noticed it was smaller than a penny. Not much left to it after cleaning it but at least the date could be read. This is the only silver or even older coin I'd ever found at this site.

    1770's Machins Mills not far from the house I grew up in, near an 1850's foundation along an old abandoned road. A buddy of mine that never used a tecter before found a early Canada copper token after ten minutes in the walls of the same foundation.
