    Backyard Finds at Mimi's

    Went to visit the inlaws in Missouri and had to try out the Ace 250 while there. The soil was so much easier to dig than what I am used to. I found the two metal dairy cow identification pieces and then got really excited to see the old coin. I was surprised when I looked on the back and saw that it was more than just an old nickel. Any idea what it was used for? It doesn't seem to have a hole where it could be sewn on as a button. I can't read the date at all, but think it is real because I can read United States on the back. Appreciate any input on the nickel or if you have an idea if the dairy items are old. Thanks!
