50th Silver Coin for 2013

 I haven't been out in a while, so I was thankful to get out for two short hunts this weekend.

On Friday, I went and hit an old ballpark that dates back to the late 1800's.

I didn't really have much luck there, but I scored a nice sportsman's overcoat button,

 from probably around the 1940's.

I also found some type of toy tractor? train? tank?

It's painted blue.

The coolest find was an old lead seal.  This is what they would have used to seal items back in the day.  I especially like this one because it is a piece of local history.

It's stamped LV for Lehigh Valley.

Today, I went to a mansion built in 1901.  I tried not to expect too much, but I was hoping to find my 50th silver coin of the year.

After digging four wheat pennies in one area, I just knew that there had to be a silver coin there somewhere.

A few minutes later, I got the signal and I found number 50,

a 1943S mercury dime.

I also found what looks like Victorian pendant, with 7 orange stones.

Freshly dug

Cleaned up

The rest of today's finds included a bunch of clad, an old brass water nozzle, and a few other miscellaneous relics.
