Default A '44 Merc & Another Buffalo

These are the better finds from the last two hunts I did at the old farm site where I found the large cent a few weeks ago. One trip netted the two wheat cents (no visible dates), the small livestock bell, two square nails, lipstick tube, and the two large black whatzits. On the next trip, I dug a 1944 Mercury dime, a buffalo nickle (no date), two spoons, a tube/barrel thing, a bullet lead, a bullet brass, and a couple of whatzits (one is part of some type of disc that has some wording on it). So far this old farm site has turned up the following coins: 1 Large Cent, 10 wheat cents, 2 buffalo nickles, 1 Silver Roosevelt dime, and 1 Silver Mercury dime. It's been a fun site to detect and I hope there's a few more goodies left to be discovered.

Nice haul of relics. I agree, that farm is likely holding more stuff, just waiting to be found.

Nice. I'm sure you'll be posting more great finds from there.
