Now why a football is surrounded by cricket balls??

Certainly could give you an English connection either from England, or possibly India where Cricket is quite popular? The British introduced them to football in the mid 19th century, so the period could be right?

Yes it makes sense it’s a soccer ball.

I agree with Bruce and John, my recipe was fully open and every signal even iron sound will have slight high pitch in it, that's the way I find modern quarters, nickels and dimes, good luck, it's a great machine you just need to put more time into using/learning it :tu:

Nice going John, it's a lots of holes for a penny but sometimes the odd silver dime pops out with the same numbers as a penny, so you never know. Great cat story :lmfao:
