    While we’re not ever going to find the exact reason this coin was found where it was, that’s probably the best scenario I could imagine. There was a school on this site, shown on the 1875 overlay. Both of my Chinese cash coins were found at a school and a park next to a school, hence the “show and tell” theory. Thank you for all your help... Ddf.

    love the Tudor in the graveyard ... story can't be just a coincidence
    Thanks Amergin, yes... the separate Tudor plot in the cemetery, while seeming far-fetched, might connect some dots. I will definitely do some research on them, if possible. I do remember their gravestones were very extravagant and had to be pricey for the time. Thx for the nod, Ddf.

    On a school grounds, I found a mid-1800's French coin, and the base of the biggest tree in neighborhood. Show and Tell...?
    Maybe not, as this is within an area where Fur Trappers once trapped the beavers, to almost extinction...! Not far from a creek. Coincidence...??

    Yes, another mystery lol... the biggest thing, is you found it and you get to hold it, wonder where it’s been, who held it... who held it last.... and ponder it’s existence. Thx for sharing, Ddf.
