    Coin spill with BIG SILVER... Large cent.. buttons.. watch fob.. interesting bell

    The weather was great today so my buddy and I got out for a while to a site that dates back to the early to mid 1800's. We both started hunting along the mature tree line near the road in the front yard.

    Not even 5 minutes into the hunt I got my first signal and dug up a coin spill that started with a 1918 S Walking Liberty half dollar at only 3 inches deep.

    I re-scanned the hole and was still getting a good signal in the side of the hole. Out popped a 1936 Mercury dime and a 1936 Buffalo nickel.

    Still getting a good signal in the hole I proceeded to recover 3 wheat pennies from the same hole. I kept searching in this area and the next signal I got was a good solid 80 VDI on my VX3. I was surprised to see a large copper coin in the hole at about 3 inches deep very close to an old tree stump.

ID:	814249Turned out to be an 1828 Coronet large cent.
    About 10 feet away from the large cent I dug what appears to be a watch fob. It says "International Harvester Company of America" and advertises all the equipment they sell.

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately the top of the bell is broken and there is a small crack down the side. Looks like the Liberty Bell. Here's a couple more pics... I cleaned it up a bit. The only marks I can see are on the top of the bell...but I can't make any sense of them.

    It's OK to be disappointed AFTER you dug it - as long as you never forget; that BEFORE you dug it, it had the POTENTIAL to be life changing!

    Thanks for the reply BVI Hunter. I was very fortunate today with some of the recoveries I made. I try to take pics of the hunt as I go so I can make a post that makes people feel like they were there when the artifacts were found. I definitely had a lot of pics to post today.
