    Nickel Trifecta and old button

    I got out this morning to my usual permissions and hit them hard for about 5 hours.
    I had a great time!

    My third target turned out to be my best dig of the day. A small coin spill next to the sidewalk with one dated buffalo nickel, (1923)
    one V nickel (1908) and two early wheat back pennies (1915 and 1917-S)! I picked up a Jefferson nickel later in the day to finalize my first nickel Trifecta!

    The button has an anchor on it. No Idea of its age.

    Can't ID the button but it looks late 19th C.

    I disagree about digging trash & sanity. A knowledgeable sane person would did IT ALL.
