Merc and big copper


Well-Known Member
Back to the spot where I found the walker. I have found 8 silver coins here but nothing older than a Mercury dime - early 1900's. I've also found a large number of tokens and matchbox cars, an old Case pocket knife and a nice lead button. I dug what I thought was another token only about 3" deep when I was pleasantly surprised to see the liberty headband of a large cent. Unfortunately the date is unreadable. Just hard to figure why a large cent turned up here - at least 80 years older than anything else I have found there. I guess it is testament to whatever was there before. I found the house that was there on google map street view from last year. Definitely 1930 ish design. A couple pics were to large to post - sorry. I don't think my phone will make them any smaller.
