Default Nice surprise at a modern ball field

I took the Nox to a 1930s - present school and a modern ball field last night. I went over an area that I had detected before with the ATpro and found no good targets.

I went out in the ball field and found a couple bucks in coins, one wheat cent and a V nickel. I didn't expect that old of a coin in that ballfield so that was a nice little bonus! I only find one or two of these old nickels a year. Definitely got quite a few nickels compared to other coins, but I was mostly cherry picking the field and ignoring pennies, especially near the old concession stand. I will go back later when I have more time and clean out the clad.

The ring is kinda strange in that it came out shiny like silver, but I doubt that it is silver, or gold. It has a inset band of acrylic or some other plastic set into the band with some stars in it. It is stamped "8" on the inside of the band, presumably the size. I can't remember what it rang up at. I also found an old brass four leaf clover charm that still had some of the original green paint on it.

Also found an Art Deco style wind up wrist watch that I forgot to take pics of at the school.

Ring looks like a “mood” ring.

Congrats on the old coins!

Wife said the same thing. I wonder what the material is that it held up so nice in the soil.

Nice finds. I'm still learning the Nox, but so far I am impressed.

Pretty decent take all around, I'd say. The new machine seems to be working well!

Thanks everyone! I'm probably happier about the V nickel than I am about silver mercs, rosies or washingtons.

Great looking old V !
I have found maybe a dozen of those old mood rings .
I remember they changed colors depending on the mood of the person wearing it .
But when found they all seem to be the same color as yours .
They do not respond after being in the ground so long . 🤔
After lost they just get so depressed they just die I think .

Good luck at that older location. Look over that field when you pull up and go for the low spots . Gotta figure out where they moved some dirt over the years.

Nice! I’ve found oldies in newer ball fields in the past, V-nicks, 2-cent pieces, silver and wheats. I assume they came in with fill dirt.

Thanks everyone! I will definitely go back. If I found a 2 cent piece, I'd be on cloud nine for the season. Same for a trime, large cent, half dime, fatty indian etc..
