Grand Slam of Nickels

Went to a house built in 1900 on Saturday. The owner said it had been metal detecting a couple times. I went extremely slow and used TTF to pull out every non-ferrous signal. The yard was very trashy. I found one 1940 wheat penny in a hole with 5 nails. I started to focus on those hard to find nickel signals and it paid off!

I found a grand slam of nickels! 1867 Shield nickel, 1899 V nickel, 1913 Buffalo nickel, and 1948 Jefferson nickel. I also came away with 15 wheat pennies and 2 Utah tax tokens.
