Nice finds, they're all so close to the same date, maybe lost at the same time?

Nice, that's the kind of site I enjoy detecting!  If any of thsoe are San Francisco minted, could be good news.

Deltadigger put a whippin' on me that day - lol.  If I recall correctly all 3 locked on at a solid 19.  No luck for me that day with silver.  All I was able to find was a couple of buttons and some camp lead.

Great finds!!

They were all New Orleans mint marks. I would love to find one with a San Francisco mark.

Possibly.... there was also a good bit of camp lead there also so it may be a small camp. We went back today to follow up on the site but the farmers had it freshly plowed. It will be after harvest now before I can get back in there.

I would imagine you do find Dahlonega minted coins out your way?  Perhaps akin to the Carson City issues out West?  

My hunt buddy found an 1849-D U.S. $5 gold coin at a trading post site we detected, and when he looked at the mint mark he muttered "Denver(?)" and to that I responded I don't think so, Denver mint didn't really exist until the turn of the 20th century....imagine our surprise when we googled it and found out it was from Dahlonega, Georgia!!

A gold coin of any kind would be exciting!  I have been to Dahlonega several times and have also visited the gold museum there. It is a neat little town.

      What's Your Most Unusual Token Find?
      Recently Calabash had posted a unusual token find for one loaf which I thought was pretty cool token find. Going through some of my token finds from past years I believe this is my most unusual token find to date. The token is from the Delagua Mine which is located in southern Colorado and is good for one cap, 22mm in size and made of brass. The V.A.F. Co. stands for the Victor-American Fuel Company.
      Here is some history on the Delagua Mine:
      Delagua developed around the Delagua bituminous coal mine, opened in 1903 and operated by the Victor American Fuel Company. As of 1922, it was the largest mine in Colorado,and at its peak employed at least 900 men. In October 1917, the Delagua Mine was considered one of the "largest and finest 'mining camps' in the state". By 1916 the saloon and dance hall had been converted into the Delagua Social Club, complete with "three first class pool tables and one billiard table", a soda fountain, , bowling alleys, a stage that featured a motion picture show twice weekly and at least 250 members in 1917. At the Delagua Mine on November 8, 1910, an explosion (loud enough to be heard three miles away in Hastings) killed 76 miners. Safety inspectors later determined that the blast was an explosion of gas and dust, caused by the open flame of a head lamp.

      I got a equinox 800 last week and my first two hunts i got nothing good. Watched you tube til I found the end of coin shooting. I made adjustments and bam one 1943 mercury dime, some wheats a 1967 peso and a cool brass button that reads California Highway Patrol. The picture I took sucks sorry about that. Whats the best way to clean these guys up? youtube is all over the map....

      ...a pretty good day by Oklahoma standards! 

      These came from a grassy area between an old hospital, and an old church; my hunting buddies managed some other goodies -- including two Mercs, a couple of IHPs, several wheats, and a Buffalo nickel.

      This weekend I went to a cool new location with multiple late 19th century cellar holes. Was using my Orx with 9” X35 at 17 KHz   
          A few interesting relics found but by far the best find was this 1864 2- cent piece which is in really nice condition with a great patina. Only my second 2- cent but the first was smoked by the fertilizer used in the park it was found in. Could barely identify it. 
          I’ll be going back to the spot multiple times as I haven’t even explored the area yet.  Also found an 1884 IHP
        Figured I’d post as the XP forum has been a little slow of late.

      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.
