Cut hammered silver, 3cent, fishscales(5cent silver)
Air testing and in the ground will produce different results.
Certain makes hate air and even recoveries can be a challenge, tall grass with certain machines.
Low and slow is a good thing to sniff out the small.

While in NY, detecting with some friends I dug 2 small coins (similar in size). The 1st was an 1834 Capped Bust half dime and an 1848 French 1 Centime. Two years later, in Ohio, I dug a Lord's prayer token which is the same size as the other two. I only wish I could find my Henny Penny (toy coin) I believe it's a little smaller than these three.

I dug an 1847 Seated Liberty Half Dime with a Minelab Equinox 600 a couple years ago in bean stubble in Southern Illinois. My oldest coin. It was a little beat up and still repeated on the detector.
