Default Tercentenary X2 and a silver nickel

These were all found at the same park.
The fob commemorates the tercentenary of the city of Lynn Massachusetts 1629 to 1929
The token is a souvenir commemorating the tercentenary of Massachusetts bay 1630 to 1930
The silver nickel was a great surprise, Itís a beautiful coin smaller than a dime and about half the thickness.
I hope youíre all enjoying the summer, HH!

I'm not sure why all my pics are sideways, sorry bout that.

Great hunt, love the Newfoundland coin. Haven't seen one of those before. Found the commemorative items in Reading?

I meant to reply to this a few days ago. Those are some really good finds! I'm from Wisconsin, where "tercen...whatever" is not even in our vocabulary. You got 2 separate items dating back about 90 years, and commemorating the 300 years before that!! Also, big congrats on the old Newfoundland silver!

Thanks NS! The nickel was a nice surprise, I had never seen one before either. All of these were found in Peabody.

Thank you Foragist! Thereís definitely some old properties here in Mass. but getting permissions for private property is another story, most of the historic land is very valuable and to be honest people just arenít all that nice. But there are still some nice treasures to find on public land here.

I guess that makes sense for the Lynn commemorative. I know of one old park in Peabody that is extremely hunted out, looks like you found yourself a good park in town.

Very cool!

It's a 5 cent piece, not a nickel. Nickels are made of nickel..
