    Looks just like those identified as from 1936-37.

    I think this is interesting. I just found another tax coin (rough) and in this same area I’m digging up tons of small nails. They are almost all exact, bent at the same area on the nail. HmmmClick image for larger version.

    If you pulled a nail with a claw hammer, the bend would usually start closer to the nail head. These nails look like they might have been driven into a plank, then peened over on the back side. Maybe the nails held the tax tokens?

    I'd love an update on this post! My family owns some historic property and just so happen to own the dump for the area as well! I've been playing amateur archeologist for years and have found lots of cool stuff... but GOLD COINS! Not to mention literally everything else you posted! If I were you, I would detect and detect and detect some more, anywhere you can. Test out any spot you feel good about. You never know what you may find! 35 acres if I remember correctly? There could and should be plenty of home sites around, I'd imagine. The history you already know and the finds you have made would keep me busy forever. My advice is the same as most others, TAKE YOUR TIME AND KEEP YOUR LIPS SEALED! No reason to rush and you will only moss/damage potential finds. Be very careful who you share your location with... there are metal detecting "Poachers" as I refer to them. They will find your spots and dig them right under your nose! Dont ask me how I know...
    I bet you have atleast a small cw camp in the vicinity of that oxbow too. Especially since you already found civil war bullets/relics and you know there was a trading post there. You literally have a treasure hunter's dream property and its YOURS! Not a permission etc. You already have 2 gold coins and all the other relics. Just take it one step at a time and be very careful and thorough. I'd detect until I picked every single signal in the ground around the gold coin spill area and for quite some distance around it, before I would move any dirt. Definitely be sifting and detecting any dirt you move as well! As far as the well, my advice is also the same. Detect concentric circles around the well and it should help you to see the different paths used, what time periods etc. Keep close track of where each item is found and I'd suggest doing some personal research on your property. Your neighbor who you bought it from and his family are a wealth of info, but there should be some info on paper as well. I'm a civil war freak so I'd be checking local civil war activity personally, but the gold would have me sidetracked I'm sure. If you never find another gold coin, you've already beat many veteran treasure hunters(myself included) in the bucket list department. You are truly blessed to own the property and I believe the property is blessed to have an owner who is interested in learning about, literally digging up and finding, and preserving the history of the property. Even my 3/4ths acre I own has been scoured with detectors a d I've found shotshell heads from the 1870s and an old hammer marked "CCC"... through some research I found that the local Civilian conservation corps camp was just a few minutes walk from my house and that they laid the fence that runs along the creek on my property. The hammer handle probably snapped and the tool was tossed or lost more likely. Enough about my piddly lil finds lol! Take your time. Check and recheck all your holes and any dirt you move, check the surface after good rains etc., be careful what you post and who you tell(2 gold coins is nothing to sneeze at) and dont RUSH it. If you rush, you will miss items and probably damage some as well. Keep people off your property and know this stuff isnt going anywhere. You've got plenty of time to find it ALL! As stated first off... I would love an update on this post! What have you found this year? I can only imagine...

    Another thought would be to charge people to come metal detect your property... I'd pay for a chance to hit that dream property for a few hours! Safe and happy hunting to you!
