Default The Connecticut Connection of Eagle and Ace

Here's my meager finds tonight a 1940 Wheatie and a 69 Canadian Quarter. I know the points only count for with US Minted coins but included a picture of it since I've only found two so far detecting.. I found an old Elementary School that's having the outside excavated and since I found the Wheat there's got to be Silver. Was sent home by rain but I'm going back ASAP..

That's 15 points. Love those Wheaties!!
