    Nice "o" dime brother!

    The bullets are post-1880s, as they have cannelures inside the rings.

    Best of luck to you and FMERG.

    Great finds! I believe your "Chinese coin" is an item used in I Ching fortune telling, not actual currency. Someone more familiar can confirm or correct that, but I think it's what it is.

    The find in this thread looks to be very old, and I don't know enough to provide any guidance. Coinman sounds pretty certain, so start with his opinion! Good luck!

    Awesome barber dime also, I have only ever found one, in my first week of detecting. I know all of the Ch'ing dynasty coins by memory now, but here is where I learned each type from.

    the feedback on the China coin is proof TNET is inhabited by some true scholars & dudes who know a bunch about a bunch
    hope it be worthiness of the time it took to dig that from the roots & rocks at 4 inches--- one of the deepest hits of the hunt
