Due to the heat and hard as a rock ground I've only be able to stand 2 to 3 hours at a time here. Fill over old dirt and everything is 4 to 8 inches down.

No id on two of the coppers. One is likely a half cent half penny given size. Other 2 are an 1838 matron and a Belgum 2 cent coin with 4 little coins stuck to it. No date on the Belgum coin because lion crest is reverse and date is on other side. It's not older than 1833 when they started using this design but it continued up to 20th century. Think the other coins are little silvers. Unfortunately in awful condition. Edges are not readed so not us coins. Tried wet sand paper to get some crust off but just shows me the top one looks silver and no details. Top coin is a touch over 20mm.

The little flower button still has some fabric in the shank!

My first shield Nickel. 1868 I think? Or it's a 6. Unfortunately reverse is toasted and I can't tell if it has stars and bars.

Silver is a 178_ carlous III one reale. Well used.

Silver cross I think I broke chipping out the concrete ground. I like it and might get it fixed. Item above I think is a lock slide?

Nice haul there! Love your finds! Thanks for showing. You might try soaking your stuck coins in olive oil for a few days to a week. They possibly could of been in a fire, & may never separate.
