I hunted at an elementary school at lunch today, and found my first wheat cent (1956). That's the oldest coin I've found so far, too. A few minutes later I found a dime and a penny right on top of each other, and I thought the dime was silver because it was coming out of the ground so shiny (silver usually discolors less than the clad coins), but it turns out to merely have been a recently lost coin (1990-something). All told, I found 18 cents. That's not much, but I'm very happy to have found a wheat.
