Started with a Minelab X-Terra 505 with stock coil or 18.75khz elliptical coil depending upon the site. Upgraded to Equinox 600

The two coppers came out of the water. One is completely toasted. Other is a braided hair large cent. At least that one I can identify. Rest of stuff is out of dirt in two locations. Frosted glass box lid was a surface find on the edge of old farm land. Wheats are 1911 and 1936. Fruit jar lid was in water. Any ideas on the lead jockey head? Fishing weight signal. Already posted the lead car but this was a group shot for a video. So the 1911 tootsie toy limousine is making another appearance lol. The great gold button is a Ives Kendrick & Co from 1837 to 1840. Posted an excerpt from a book on how the company started. It's really interesting.

On to this 30s 40s garbage dump that's along the sides of and also between two small hills. Overtime stuff has just been washing out and on to the trail. Schwinn majestic badge and buckle were 1 arrow depth signals. The badge is likely 1940s. My guess given the glass ware in there. I suspect that jockey head was a doll? because it looks like it attached to a body and not like a full lead toy that got decapitated. Kinda like the attached jockey doll.
