    Do you have any places where a carnival sets up once a year? If there was a place like that from many years ago (or even recent) it would likely have coins from under any ride that moved fast or spun the occupants upside down. There used to a lot of amusement parks in Iowa that have shut down over the years (I had family in Spencer Iowa and we used to visit in the 1960's). Do some research.

    Also look for places (get an old railway map from the 1920's thru 1940's) that were used as watering sites for steam trains - these sites are no longer in operation (as railway stops), but often have interesting finds. This type of railway stop is all over the country. Do some research in your area.

    Great idea on the carnival!

    I did a few overlays from the 30's today, found 7 spots I doubt anyone has been, I'll post when I get a chance to check them out.
