    When 'seated' isn't

    Three hour hunt in Baltimore this morning and dug three 19th century coins. This was a 'first' for me to find two large cents in the same day in the City.

ID:	1751824 Both are a little 'toasty' but enough detail can be seen to place them both in the 1850s, in fact, I believe the first if 1856.

    The other 'coin' had me 'scratching my head'. Never saw the 'seated' figure on a brass coin.

    This is a Smith & Wicks canning token, c. 1870s.

    Got to tell you the better story from the morning. A man in his 30s stopped by the fence and asked me if I find anything 'old' in the park. He lives a block away from the park and showed me a coin he spotted recently in a dirt pile by some homes that are being renovated in his block.....a 1923 Peace dollar. He wants to get a detector since he has an interest in collecting coins. ...another great conversation from a hunt in the City!

    That's right, Bob. The seated figure has the cap on the rod and the stars about the edge; there is no date below the line though. The reverse says "SMITH & WICKS" above, with "5" in the middle and "BALTO." on the bottom. They were a major can manufacturing company in Baltimore.

    Congrats! I know how excited I was to find my one and only large cent of that type, so I can only imagine scoring two in one hunt. Awesome!

    Thanks lemnac. The second sounded like the first on the Equinox, high tone with VDI up into high 30s. Good in 2 directions and no iron break.

    Perhaps that token was pay for someone who worked at the can factory.

    Thanks Truth. Token is pretty sweet. I've dug about four business tokens from this site and one political campaign token this year.

    Thanks J.Cache. How things change. Late yesterday I hit the woods and came away with a handful of shotgun bases. Today - a different story.
