These are some of the finds made on the last several hunts I was on over the last few weeks.
Hunted at a few different old houses around a 1800's Cellar Hole.

The 1920 Canadian Large Cent was a real surprise - I thought it was a Token at first.
Large Cents come in at a (95) TID on the Deus - this LC came in as a solid (86).
Canada minted Large Cents from 1858 to 1920.
It's a little larger in diameter than a US Quarter and a little smaller than a US Large Cent.
In 1920 they minted both Large and Small Cents - I just got lucky.

We were hunting a 1800's Cellar Hole yesterday and I got a Wheat Cent range hit - removed the coin - checked the hole again - got another hit - then another - then another, etc.
Ended up pulling (11) coins out of the same hole.
(3) Indian Cents - 1898-1902-1903 and (8) Wheat Cents - 1909 to 1924.

Also found a total of (36) Wheat Cents on these hunts.

The Chevrolet Car Dealer Ship - "Encased Key Ring" had a Wheat Penny in it at one time.
"It says - "NEVER GO BROKE" around the edge. The 4th photo is of a similar non-dug version.

Sorry for the low quality photo's and I don't usually don't clean my finds till Winter time, when the seasons over.

Good Hunting !

Congrats on a awesome day of hunting!!! You got a little bit of everything! All nice recoveries. Love the Chevy key ring particularly. When you get time would you post another pic of the Chevy key ring. Thanks.

Stellar find E! You did get lucky. They made about 2.3 small cents for every LC that year so you definitely beat the odds with that one. Looks to be in pretty sweet shape with good patina too.
