Found 3 more early one cents at the same exact spot from last week's post. Digging in what appears to be the remains on a chimney. Lot of broken brick with plenty of iron signals mixed in. Pushing the limits with my 11" coil. Need the 6" next trip out. One penny is not good. Other two are better but one is now standing out as the far best of the lot of 5 so far. Also found what looks like a very small pocket knife? Has some nice details on the side. Back is plain. Also away from the brick pile I found this 1806 King Geo III Penny. Face side not great, back when cleaned could be decent.
Forgot to add this old iron padlock which I though might be another coin. But just as neat.


Thanks for all the likes and feedback this past week!

Very nice indeed.
They don't come much nicer than the 1803 one does.
Congrats on the knife also-a very early one.
