I'm very new to metal detecting and just did my first beach yesterday. It was a small swimming pond that had been dug to build an interstate. I didn't think it was too old but found a dateless buffalo nickel and a 5 peso mexican coin from 1980 which was weird because I live in a northeastern state.

I decided to stop at an extremely old fair grounds on the way home and found this game token which is my best find yet. I date it to before 1940 but I have no clue, so if anyone has an idea on how old it is that'd be great. The grounds are huge and I barely got anywhere in 3 hours due to so many old pull tabs but this was worth it.

Congrats on the hunting finds, sounds like the fairgrounds will produce well just have to get through the junk.
