Mom & Pop Grocery Store Finds

A buddy of mine owns a convenience store that used to be a mom & pop grocery store and he gave me the OK to detect the property. I know the store is at least 50 years old. I remember going to this store when I was a small boy. Anyway, the store appears to have been picked through but I managed to get a couple of goodies so far.

This is the first day's findings:

Here they are cleaned:

Thanks for looking.
