Found this at an old school. It’s not in great shape. I don’t have a lot of coins but I’m sure I will gather some along my detecting journey’s

I'm guessing you're a relative newbie, based on your comments. War nickels are cool, and hard to find, so great job there. Keep at it, get to know your detector and the finds will continue to pile up. I've been at this great hobby for 32 years, still learning and still piling up the finds. Good luck going forward!

Great find! I look forward to seeing more of your recoveries... I'm sure there are more in the area you are detecting!

Great find. I don’t have a lot of coins either. A 1902 v nickel and some wheats. Been to homesites where I was sure to find Indian heads, mercs, etc. only to leave with rusty horse tack lol. I’ll take it all.

Also, if not for your efforts, that significant coin in American history would possibly remain in the ground and not be seen by anyone. Congrats!

I been to an 1870 church and nothing older than 1960s coins, sometimes it’s just not there or already been found. But I have found a lot of other relics besides coins so it evens out

Research, master your equipment, go slow- there's still so much out there. Best wishes for a long and successful hunting career!
