Default Sunday hunt

Tried out a new area today and it was full of surprises. Best finds were the 71 Ike dollar, 54 s wheatie and a worn Thai Baht coin.

Interesting finds! Is that a live handgun round? I always enjoy getting those out of the ground as they are usually shallow and I am not sure I'd like to "test" one with a spinning lawn mower blade.

Is that a silver Ike? If it is I think it's the first one I've seen posted, great finds!

Yep, a .380 round. Sadly I find quite a few live rounds around here.

Ike is clad and cleaned up well.
