Default Silver and tokens, great new permission

Made some decent finds on a new permission last night one of the origional presidents houses from the local universtiy dating to the 1860's at the latest....soooo sad is that they are digging up the property, but it gets me a chance to get to the old stuff. I'm finding more and more in my area that the older stuff is really really deep. the large token and the silvers were all around 8 to 10 inches, and this house was an 1800's house. Which means the old stuff is even deeper. Managed to pull some old stuff from the dug up part though; some kind of fob, a cufflink, harmonica reeds, bail seals, some kind of small token with a hole, and the list goes on. Heres a few highlight pics of some of it. Going to slam this property hard, considering the 13inch coil for the sport once I get all the trash dug out. Or I might have to get a pi machine to start hitting the depths most of the 1800's stuff seems to be in my area. So the large token is a bank advertisement token from 1920s, no idea about the token with the hole. The merc is actually a key date of sorts I think? 1921d but no idea on grade or value yet. Found a silver washington as well.

Thanks for the input I was leaning towards good or fine because of the lettering around it not being a great strike. Not bad though somewhere around a 100 dollar coin if I ever part with it.

Neat finds there. In the third pic, bottom left under the quarter looks like the front bib overall strap hook thingy. Bottom right, the handel for a safety razor. Agree the dime probably grade F....but dude you need to wear gloves or slow down. You have busted blisters and a bandaid, lol.

NO TIME TO SLOW DOWN!!! Well also along with digging I work as a tech in a hot glass shop. Turning wrenches, dealing with things over 2000degrees f, sharp glass everywhere. Then i get home and i have a large property where im always doing something. Just started putting in the first of around 100 fence posts. My hands get destroyed on a regular basis. Though the bandaid was from my new whites shovel......thing came sharp
