The item with the bouquet of flowers on it, is it silver? 

If so it would have fit inside a holder ring for a necklace. I have seen some of those same items in the past that were the size of a nickel. All of them had a holding rings to attach the item.

Great finds and isn't that hotel supposed to be haunted, be careful of what you find there.

I'm pretty sure it's a dime with the engraving on it. There is a building on the square that's supposed to be haunted....not sure if it's the same one...lol

You didn't mention the TID, but that adds further evidence assuming it's in the 20's.  Weren't a lot of those coins modified as love tokens only reworked on one side?  If so, yours would be an even more unusuual find.  Nice, regardless.  And the token seems to be of pretty high trade-in value.  When did the hotel go out-of-business?

GB, I couldn't remember the id#'s on the love token but it's mostly 19's and 20's....it's pretty thin. I've seen those tokens both ways and some have a hole in them.

 I'm not sure when the hotel went out of business but I did see an 1884 date when it was open. I'll try and find out some more info about it.

We're in the old part of town and the sheriff's dept. bought three old houses and had them removed for an expansion. This stuff came from the house across the street from where I got the other tokens. I have one more token that came from this yard that's soaking. I can't make out all the writing on it yet...hopefully it will clean up but I have my doubts about it. 

Good luck and HH! Tom

      Found this with Equinox 800 on a early site..

      After a bit of a drought of finding cool coins with the Equinox, I found another V nickel detecting in the neighbors parking strip in between thunderstorms.  It was pretty worn and pitted, and not of any numismatic value, so I cleaned it up a bit.

      Went to the same location where I had 42 quarters. I used the same settings, but this time I swung the Samurai sword 15" coil. I had a bit more time today (11:20-1:20), but the humidity was really oppressive. No mosquitoes this time because they don't even want to be out in the Florida heat!
      I believe 55 quarters is a first for me in 2 hours. If I were not the one going up and down all those times, I would not believe these coins all came from 2 hours of detecting. Most were within the first few inches, so they were a quick dig. With all the stuff dug, that is an average of about 1 item a minute. I think I know what I can save up for...knee replacemnts!
      I left a scad of dimes in the ground, so there are still plenty of targets for my friend. 😁
      The bracelet was a STRONG 9-10. It looked amazing coming out of the ground, but it was not silver. There was also an iPod Nano, but my son snagged it in hopes of cleaning it up.
      Now, time to focus on the jewelry!

      I had a rather awesome hunt today, scored a barber grand slam and a dime trifecta... Started the day hunting after a 6 1/2 drive to my old stomping grounds. First site gave up the barbers, rosie and a wheat.....
      Ending the day by doing a test hunt at  a backup spot, looks like both are going to produce very nicely. Scored 2 wheats and the merc in 30 minutes....
      Found the barbers with the Equinox 800 and the others with the CTX....

      My wife kicked me outta the house for 8 days....so...I did some research close to where I grew up and arrived today for nothing but digging, eating and sleeping

      First spot was across from the old railroad depot next to a dried up man made lake from back in the day.....

      Second hunt was an old city park.....

      i am having fun experimenting with Equinox settings, but ever learning the tones, and feeling a bit more confident.  Late 1700s farm house with tons of modern trash gave up the 1901 Barber dime, sterling watch back, and Philadelphia & Reading railroad button.  the rings and Rosie were from a natural spring swimming area.  The 1905 Barber dime i got yesterday from a large field I have been hunting for about 7 years.  Two Barbers within 2 weeks is rare for me....then topped them all off today with this 1853 half dime.  My first one of those, and so nice to fill another slot in my Type book of dug US coins.  been a really sweet year with finding coins.   thanks for looking.  HH
