More Coins

Had to dig a pile of modern coins before getting into any older stuff. Most of the modern coins came from a single 1 foot area under a clothesline.

Not sure what the large plate-like thing is. it has a horse on both sides and is flattened, but is/was hollow.

Sounds like a treasure trove.

Nothing like digging up a silver coin. They come out like the day they were lost. Like they say more has been lost than ever found.

The hollow thing looks like the piece from the end of a belt. The end tip of the leather or cloth belt would have gone inside it. I'm wearing a belt right now like this, though the metal piece is shorter.

Iím always interested in these metal detecting posts. My kids got me one for Christmas years ago. My most memorable find was a copper roof...a whole roof ( about 20 ft x 25 ft ) There wasnít any sign of the rest of the building, but the thick copper roofing was all intact. I guess if you couldnít find that, you werenít liable to find old wheat pennies.
