Default Maybe the biggest buckle I have ever found

Sorry to say, this is only my second time out this year metal detecting. I went to a city park that has been pounded, just like every other city park. I was able to uncover a few older items/coins using my Anfibio Multi. The buckle is probably the largest one I've ever found. Also, what looks to be a pistol ball?
The compact lid is old. It is a Deere Reich Ash from the 1920's. Also found a Wheat Cent and a 1907 V Nickel. I gotta make more time for detecting!

Nice finds from a pounded park. I bet there are more nickels to be found there. Those are the last to be cherry picked.

Good luck!

Cool finds! V nickels are always a nice bonus too.

Thanks. You are right about nickels being the last coins pulled from parks. I usually only dig nickel signals when they are showing some depth.
