As I told Greg, I was more impressed personally with your Buffalo nickels then I was with 'V' nickels. Back in the late sixties and all through the 70s I was finding a lot of Buffalo nickels which I've always thought to be one of the most attractive coins we had, considering both obverse and reverse, but in the 80s a lot of those with all the other more recent Decades of coins started to become depleted from the typical Urban coin hunting sites at parks and schools.

From 83 to the present I've concentrated more heavily on ghost towns homesteads and other early era sites where I have found countless V nickels and many many Shield nickels. My favorite Town site would produce three or four shield for every 5 V, but I never took a buffalo from there even though it was doing dling into the buffalo nickel era

Also, as We Know, a lot of Buffalo nickels get worn and have an unreadable date, so that makes it an even nicer treasure when we find a Buffalo nickel with a readable date and in decent physical condition. So even though we had a nice shield and a kind of Warren Shield and a couple of these found on the outing I'm still envious of your to Buffalo nickels.

I also noticed there were a couple of coin purse clasps recovered. Very popular back in those days and not just with females in their purse, but males kept there change and tokens in a coin purse as well. A lot of bridges didn't have back pockets back then, and a lot of people wood wear holes in their pocket from too much stuff so they kept things in a coin purse. Usually the smaller size similar to the one you showed.

It's always fun to find them and then follow our imagination as we slow down and carefully hunt all around the area very methodically just hoping for one or two Targets would have vanished at the same time. It seldom happens that I find anything close to one of those but it does happen on rare occasion.

Glad you made the outing and had a successful time. And I look forward to you making it drive over our Direction here in eastern Oregon for us to work a site or two.
