The weather is pretty cold here, but the grass keeps the ground from freezing, so Monday I hit one of the local parks. Only found clad, a toy, a tiny carabiner, some 45 Long Colt brass, a navy midshipmans pin, an Aussie coin and a junk ring.

I had about an hour to kill Wednesday, so I hit another park. Only found clad, a Mexican coin, a junk earring and a junk bracelet.

Today I had a couple hours free and the sun's been out enough where I thought I could dig in the dirt, so I hit an old railroad siding area just a little ways out of town. Found some cool old junk, including a "Nevada Novelty Co" 25c token. I looked up the token and it appears it is from 1898 and was used as a gaming token at a downtown Reno casino.

So I'm in a bit of a slump for finding gold, but still having fun out there, despite the crummy weather.
Thanks for coming by and taking a peak!

Looks like a good week to me! I especially like the token. I find so few of them that aren’t from video arcades. Nice find!

Just a numbers game until the Gold, at least your still digging.

For sure, old tokens seem far and few between. I have a thing for tokens, so I'm always stoked to find them, even newer ones. I've put together a huge coin album of just tokens in the two years I've been detecting.
