Two good reasons to return, and I hope you do.

We always hunt old sites with the hope of finding an old coin or two, but for me, finding any trade token hits almost a notch higher on the hunt success category.

Just go easy on the vise, and try to find a nice flat piece of metal go on either side of the token between the Vise Jaws. Personally, I try to clean a lot of the surface off the token before I try to flatten them back out. And I turn the Vise handle slowly and take my time. Sometimes, with some metals, trying to realign them too quickly can cause small cracks or fractures.

When you report back to let us know how they turned out, maybe you could also share with us what detector and coil you were using and the general settings. Just those routine things I always like to see as do some others. And if you still have access to that site, I would definitely pay it a revisit.
