Cellar hole- "cross century contamination"

Didnt get a whole lot today, but it was a nice couple hours in the woods. Dug a bunch of horse related relics (tack, leather, brush, buckles) Only managed two keepers, and they're 200 years apart. The dandy button had my heart pumping! All I saw was something big and round and gold, but then noticed it had a shank. Lots of gold gilt left on the back, but not much left on the front. There doesn't seem to be a design, but that's ok. It's 1700s, right?! About 10 feet away, I got a beautiful penny signal and I thought for sure I had a big copper. I was really surprised to see a silver edge in the hole! Of course, the mind is racing wondering what it could be since I just dug the dandy button at the same depth. 1938 canadian dime...I was disappointed and happy at the same time lmfao. I dug a few other things, pocket knife, a weird cap off of something and other junk. On to the next cellar hole Yes

Some nice keepers regardless of the age difference!! Congrats!

But I can relate to when you are in an old area and a modern silver pops up. You hate to be disappointed but like you said -- Happy at that same time!!

Thanks Ron. Any idea what the thing is in the bottom picture? It looks like a reed but it's not, and had that chain on it

It looks like a fun hunt ! Congrats on the 1700s button.
In my area early 1800s is about the best you find , maybe I'm a little green with envy.
