    Same site more relics, clad, copper & unknown large copper coin possibly?

    Well the title says it all.. been back to the same site I've been doing..

    Unknown round copper coin like object, it's slightly (1mm) larger than a quarter but also slightly skinnier & it weighs 5.9 grams. Have not attempted to clean as of yet. Does anyone have an idea at all on what it could be from just the size, weight & make up (copper). It sure looks like an old copper coin but I see NO markings or impressions in/on it. Maybe after some peroxide I'll be able to see something? Would love input on it!

    70's Key & can opener

    Multiple old copper light socket pieces & a copper pointy thingy

    Late 1800's or early 1900's whole door lock assembly (possibly Van Camp brand but not 100% sure yet)

    2 clad quarters

    The door lock, 15-20 nails, 2 quarters & the copper round coin like object were all found within 1.5' of each other between 2 big old trees that are about 10' apart in an old back yard. The area is so littered with iron that the copper & clad weren't found till the door lock & nails were found & removed first. There is still a whole bunch of iron & nails in the ground in this general area so it will be a lot of work getting this section done properly & it's gonna destroy the area but I have a feeling this is the hot spot of the whole yard & they don't care if I sort of tear it up as its a spot that grass doesn't grow very well on anyhow. Might just destroy it, buy some better soil to mix in & then replant some grass seed for em.
