Went back to the old house today with the small coil near the back door of the house hit a shallow signal almost didnt dig it at 2.5" thought probably some junk copper but what the @#$%^&* out pops a copper token at least thats what I thought until I looked closer and saw the 2 cents this coin is in unbelievable shape if it wasnt for the hard dents in the rim I believe the bulldozer may have found it before me theres some shiny scratches on the coin Also found the lead seal that reads 100 on one side and P.O on the other is it railroad or post office the tracks arent that far away from the house about 300 yards
Also a thimble a marble and a harmonica
