    Late April Finds - Park & Street Projects

    These finds are from the past couple of weeks from several sites. Back for more to a couple of spots.
    Been getting lucky with eyeballing the marbles, dolls parts and buttons lately. The 1893 V Nickel was also an eyeball find.

    Nice work Milco. I almost hit the downtown street that is under construction, but decided to go elsewhere. Congrats on the finds! Doll parts are kind of creepy.

    GREAT finds! I like the porcelain doll leg the best for some reason. Is that a ceramic bottle cap next to the lock? Looks like an H on it?

    Indeed I did! Out in the middle of a bean field in the country. I always wondered how that Shield Nickel got there. I still have it!

    Great bunch of finds! Since the lockdown, Iv'e been driving east everyday to go to work and thats about it. A couple of days ago i had to go downtown in our village and saw that most of the streets have been torn out and already had gravel on them. My town was established in 1835. Thats old for around here. I can only imagine what was laying there!!
