A token spill They had at least 10 tokens in one big plug and on the sides of the plug I kept getting signals. 20 tokens in all from the town next to mine there’s some scallops some holes in the middle and octagons it was pretty exciting. I also found an iron thing that hopefully somebody can help me with. Happy hunting my friends

Nice tokens. Should clean nicely. Interesting that there’d be a spill of them.

The iron thing looks like a tooth from the bucket of a bobcat or loader. Something like that anyway 🤷🏻‍♂️
I appreciate it and the funny thing is it’s an abandoned house in an old part of town so I just go in the backyard and I’ve gone one of the time where I have found about another 15 of them this lady must’ve been throwing them like Mardi Gras

Wow, that's a heck of a pile of tokens, very cool, congrats Truth!
I appreciate that oldmxrat. I suffer with insomnia I didn’t go to bed for 30 hours the day before I left to go metal detecting at 7 AM sunrise and I finished at about 1 o’clock and then I slept for 18 hours and woke up at 2 PM. I live a crazy life I Telya but once I’m Metal Detecting I can’t stop

Never seen a Token spill that big - very cool !
I've had good luck cleaning Tokens in similar condition as yours (both copper & Aluminum) with an Electrolysis Bath.

And yes, you found a replaceable tooth - probably off a larger Backhoe or Track Excavator.
Looks a little to big to be off a Bobcat (I'm in the business).

The funny thing is I went there once before and on the side where the driveway used to be on the driver side I found like 12 tokens not a spill this time I went back there the second hole a dog they just kept coming and coming from the side wall yeah it was a trip. They’re all from the same general store that was from the late 1800s to the early 1900s I love old local tokens brother

Great recovery of the tokens! I had the same reaction to the tooth-like thing... off a digging device like a backhoe.

Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
