    1 - Silver Roosevelt - 1962
    3 - Silver Washington Quarters.. All 1964!

    Massive Clad and Cents

    Silver Cat Ring

    Misc Metal
    21 - Wheat Cents!.. Shown on the left side

    This neat medallion that states..
    Licensed Chauffeur

    That is the outer ring of a bearing, it has a groove on the inside for the ball bearings and a lip on the edge for a dust seal.
    Nice finds you got there.

    Notice there are no Nickels shown. I have my Minelab Vanquish set up on a custom discrimination setting to detect clad, copper and silver.
    If I don't use the discrimination setting I would have Nickels also. But the lower numbers are bottle caps, pulltabs, foil and a lot of other junk. On my next visit I will do no discrimination setting because that's where the gold could also be found!

    Why on earth is a fifty cal slug in a park in Brooklyn?? A pocket piece perhaps?

    The cat ring is neat. And of course silver is always good. Surprised the merc is so rough. And yeah the .50 cal is a surprise there

    Very cool! I especially like the cat ring and am perplexed by the 50 cal.
