    Found these today playing in my yard metal detecting didnt think I'd find much but since the house was built in 1890 I went along the foundation I may check the yard tomorrow lol note I washed them with warm water and soap nothing else but the dime looks like it was scratched to heck by time idk I used a soft cloth to rub the coins... I know nothing special but I didnt expect to find anything tbh lol

    I don't have the ear for a nickel. My machines are set up for silver and 10C plus clad. A small piece of info. Dig all signals. Especially Zinc..

    That's a good start.
    Do some research on the property as to where there might have been trees, the driveway and back door.
    Kids hang upside down from the trees drop coins.
    People hunting for the house keys drop coins from the vehicle leading to the house and search the porch areas by the back door.
    We have found more coins in these areas in the historic homes.
