crikey, those decimal coins look like they've been in some aggressive soil!
luckily where I am the ground is mostly benign crap sand (some limestone in the region tho), & even the good farmland areas aren't too agggressive, so coins tend to come out clean

Congrats on the token and 1915 shilling, some of those silvers look a little worse for wear. Hope you get some rain over your way to soften things up a bit. thumbsup

That telephone earpiece would be of interest to collectors. It will be off a candlestick or early wallset telephone.

Not often you find such old coins in a park setting, nice work, especially with that wonderful bullhead KG3 shilling. thumbsup
