    Coins and relics from old schoolhouse

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to share some of my finds from my last couple of hunts. My buddy King Permish got the ok for us to hunt an old school house that I know has been hit several times over the years but we went low and slow and dug a lot. Huge trash pile but we had a good 7-8 hours into it over two trips. The Skelton key spill came from a previous hunt in an old yard, but all 3 in the same hole. Probably a rusted out key ring in there somewhere too. The oldest Indian is in poor condition, either an 1872 or 1873. 3 silver in a spill along with a Jefferson nickel. A nice cuff link and shoe button cover. A pin that says “So’s your old man” a very old expression that’s kinda like the modern “yo momma”. Lots of cool old relics including a unique horse harness buckle, and a rolled penny from The international livestock show in Chicago Illinois and an old laundry soap token that has a Lincoln front. Ended up with 3 Indians, 3 silver, a 1902 V nickel and a bunch of wheats. Fun stuff, thanks for looking. HH, Griff.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    The International Livestock Show was a 'big deal' in its day. Interesting history and pics can be found here.

    Awesome finds! It’s amazing the school is still there. All the farmers here would have plowed through that years ago .

    Made the mistake of showing the wife your post.

    Now she is asking me if "Minelab" is a good brand.

    Ugh. This is going to be expensive.

    Nice eclectic set of relics there. The You're Old Man pin is very cool and the IHCs cleaned up really nicely. Good job.

    Very nice finds, hard to believe that place had been already hit.

    Great variety of finds. I like that elongated penny from the International Livestock show in Chicago. Just last week, I found a token that said the same thing, and had the date 1931 on it.

    Wow, what a great haul. I'm gonna have to start looking into where there might be an old schoolhouse around here...
