I hit an area I've been meaning to come back to for over 10 years. I had found old coins here the last time, so, I expected some this time too, since I'd be using a better machine than last time. It didn't disappoint, however, I was expecting a bit more silver and a few more pieces of jewelry. I didn't expect my silver coins to be a war nickel and a walking half though! I figure a few Roosevelt dimes, maybe a few Mercs, and maybe a Washington quarter or two. The ring found is just a poser.....18K plated....damn! You can see most of the other stuff. The half is above the ring and the war nickel is to the right of the ring, both before cleaning. I found 5 wheat cents too. The bullet is a .25 round. I can't quite make out what the plaque is for. Of the other stuff, the item in the middle is a bilge plug from a boat, and the item far left I believe to be an oiler for an old engine or piece of equipment. Any questions, just ask!

Congrats on the walking half! They are so pretty!! Those plates rings sure do look nice in the hole though, don't they?
