Lincoln Park Buried Treasure

These are coins or other stuff that I found with my metal detector.
No park is ever "searched out".
Even though others were searching the park for years
before me, there is still more treasure yet to be found.
(updated 3/21/07)

Here is an itemized list of my findings.
I searched this park before but never put a list until now.
I use a Whites 6000 Series 3 Coinmaster I bought in 1985.
 

I plan on searching again and post what I find.
