Default Found a neat penny..

Got out yesterday just before school let out for a short lived hunt at my local park..The park went from just me there to over 20 children in less then 30 minutes.. Anyways found 5 wheats & some clad, I also found one penny that looks to have been punched out in the center.. Kinda neat but I have no idea what they were trying to do..Some sorta design I guess. Thanks for looking.

It's my local park that I've hunted for over 10 years.. I just tried walking diagonal yesterday instead of in a straight line, surprising what a change in direction can make..I thought for sure it was hunted out.

Nice finds, Lightningjack, especially that penny with Noah's Ark on it. I must admit I didn't see that until Squishy and MrBrian pointed it out.
