Default Worm and toad hit an old school

Worm and I braved the near ice storm weather this morning and hit an old school that was built in 1920...and it's still in use! Things were pretty slow all morning. Worm got a wheatie and a small 925 charm that he said he lost down the sink drain I got a 1943 war nickel, #3 silver fty. I got another nickel signal on the nox and dug up a smooth, green, bigger than a penny coin. I had to let worm look at it with his eagle eyes and he saw an 1899 date. We finally figured out it was a V nickel. That green patina really threw me off! Even with the cold temperatures we had fun!

Congrats to both of you guys on a great hunt!
Condolences to worm on the silver charm, is there a trap on the drain?
Maybe you could get it back.

I too love the adventures of Toad and Worm

Mudd tells a story of a guy who travels a lot and takes his pinpointer with him and scans the sink traps in hotels.. If your Trap is plastic you may want to try that !!

Most excellent finds boys !

yes that green patina would throw me off too. V nickels don't normally get that color. Strange.

Man I told my wife to not run any water in the kitchen sink. While I was in the building grabbing tools and a good cold adult beverage to take the trap off, my son walks into the kitchen, and turns the water on wide open!!! All I could do was shake my head while saying "YOU HAVE GOT TO BE S*%TING ME!!!"
I figure when that rush of water went through it took the ride on into the ol' poop tank!!
