    Now that's a mind blowing historical site! I can't even imagine finding all those Roman coins in such a small area like that. Do you think there is more there, Dave? Are you planning on returning?

    Nice finds, Don! I love the Bull Durham token and the 1916 Illinois Motor Vehicle registration tag! I bet it could be flattened out easily.

    How exciting! With your expertise you are sure to find some hammys, Dave! I hope you will be shooting some video.

    I wonder if it's a locket that held photos? Just a thought.

    What does the back of it look like?

    I love the green patina on that 1884 Indian Head. Too bad somebody else beat you to the sidewalk tear out but at least you got some keepers.

    Lots of $$$ in that car photo!

    Isn't it crazy that there's still so much silver left in public parks? Especially silver quarters! That 1924 Merc is a real looker, Drew!

    I agree that the buckle looks old too! :yes:

    That is definitely a coin ring! The ridges are the "dentils" that are found around the perimeter of the obverse or reverse of a Seated or Barber coin.

    I like the ring with the thunderbird on it...

    I'm not sure, unless they were afraid that people would hoard the 1943 steel cents because they were so unusual, causing a shortage of cents in circulation.

    Here's one I found in a coin spill.
