    Hello everyone,
    Today I did a 5 hour Metal Detecting hunt at 2 new locations.. Owl's Head Park and Leif Ericson Park both located in Brooklyn NYC.

    I was sure to find myself some more US silver coins but I didn't.. :(

    I did find a no date Large Cent.
    I need help with this one. ID needed!
    These are the best pictures for everyone to see..

    And I detected a clump of chains in one spot!
    They were all tangled together. It a while took untangle them. All 14K..

    That large cent could certainly use a nice prolonged distilled water soak.

    Do you cash in the clad?
    And better report those chains to the cops, looks like a snatch and grab of three chains ditched to hide the evidence. The crime rates in ny are terrible, ;)

    Good golly, how much gold is that?

    If I turn the pareidolia suppressor all the way down to 0, I imagine I can make out a "4" followed by a "3" in that first image. But I guess that doesn't fit with the rest of the image.

    So glad you got out. Recovery must be improving. Love the finds. Those gold chains must be the stash of a thief who was about to get caught. Lol

    As usual, great finds!
