    Buffalo Spill, WW1 Great Seal Button, and a lead token?

    Went to a couple different spots today to really test out the v. 3.0 on the Equinox. One was a small park that I haven't had a ton of luck at. It has a lot of iron as well as a ton of overhead powerlines. I squeaked out a few wheats, a spoon, a ww1 Great Seal button with Attleboro, MA backmark, and the buffalo nickel spill. I was very pleased with these finds.

    Lastly I went to another area that I have hit before and have gotten some modern silvers. It's over old farmland , as most places are around here. I got a deep 30s signal and about 12" down i found this lead token/advertisement. I'm still trying to figure out everything it says.

    Thanks for looking!

    The lead seal is very interesting. What does it say? "KOGON JALES COMPANY, INC, *AWPORT, NEW HAMPSHIRE"

    Your guess is a good as mine. Sometimes I see Kogon, Sometimes Mogon. Sales Company? NEWPORT? heck if I know!

    Here it is--looks like they went out of business in 1940. I think Kocon might have been a surname.

    Congrats on some nice finds with the updated machine. Those buffalos are in fairly good shape, and that button is a great find.
