I finally got the time to clean the coins that were in my 6/12/22 post.
Not exactly great photo's - they were taken with a Cell Phone.
The 1920 and one of the 1931 Large Cents are not in good condition so I didn't take close up pic's of them.

*** Text from my original post on 6/12/22 ***
I was on my way home after looking at a job about 30 miles South of where I live when I spotted some cut sandstone's in the woods. The stones were next to an area that was being cleared for a large electric powerline.
I asked one of the machine operators if I could do some metal detecting.
He said OK, go ahead , we're not working in that area right now.
I only walked 15 - 20 ft. and got a clear 89 signal on the Deus - a real nice 2 Cent.
Then the good finds just kept coming !
It's to bad this site is gone now, because I'm sure there were more good finds there.
Sorry for the bad photo - just been to busy to clean the finds and take new pics.
Here's what I found in one and half hour hunt ...
1829 - Half Cent
1839 - Seated Dime
1871 - 2 Cent
(3) Large Cents - 1820 - 1831 - 1831
Miner's Tag *** Ohio Tested & Sealed Tag *** (3) 1800' s Flat Buttons
Rival Dog Food "This Dog Belongs To" Tag *** Brass Buckle
And, as on every hunt - a 2001 Clad Dime
Good Hunting !
