    Oldest House In My Area

    Today I got permission at the oldest house in my town. Of course someone brought in topsoil in the 50s or 60s
    I still managed this 28ish mm copper with "auctori" and left facing bust clearly visible. I'd like to ID it for the home owner if someone could chime in. It looks like a CT bust profile but I don't know.
    The religious pin and 1930s "Teddy Tail League" pin, along with a 1914 wheat, were found yesterday at a park.
    Thanks!

    Nice finds! I wish I owned a bulldozer and ask the owners if they would like a new lawn. Detect, peel off 8", repeat.
