    Found my first buffalos and first shield nickle

    These are from my past two days out. I finally found my first buffalo's. On top of that I got my first shield nickel. I could only date one of the buffalos under magnification and it is a 1927. There isn't much left of the shield nickel. I can see a "5" on one side and a shield on the other. Kinda weird, because I have found half dozen V nickels this year. Also got a better looking indian (1900). A couple of silver Rosies and not pictured is 10 wheaties. Two from 1919 and the rest were 30's, 40's and 50's.

    These were found in a local park with the Explorer II. I really am starting to like this detector. Coins were dug about 5 inches give or take an inch.

    Not much, but here is the pictures
