Dear White's,

My dad and I went out to an old bus stop he had in mind. He had found a few rings near the bus stop sign. We were about to leave the bus stop until I walked down about 20 feet from the bus stop.

I started digging up foreign coins. I called my dad over so he could get his share. We hunted out a 10 x 8 spot near the bus stop where we were finding the coins. About 2 hours later we had about 80 foreign coins a few gold and silver rings and a gold broach that doesn't have a gold marking. It looks like gold to me. It looks like it was from the Victorian days. All of our finds were an inch at the most in the ground and some coins were right on top. The best coin I found was a 1902 King Edward VII silver crown.
