Mid 60's with no wind and sunny sky's. Simply a great day to swing a coil here in Minnesota. Still had to work in the morning but I was able to spend some afternoon time in my favorite ghost town. Now a bean field. A 1879 Indian head Penny, an 1868 Shield Nickel, a 45 cal round ball and check out that interesting button with kids dancing in a circle.

One of the most interesting buttons I've seen in awhile. Not a type I've seen posted before. Clearly from the nursery rhyme Ring a Ring O'Roses & similar to the 1881 book illustrations which is roughly when I would date it;

Great finds- the date is very clear on the shield nickel, not a common thing. The button is extremely unique and very cool- Congrats!

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.
