    I can't even imagine what it would be like to find a copper spill! :shocked04:

    Were the two coins stuck together, Drew, or were they just in the same hole? Is the dateless one a Matron also?

    Something else to ponder, why don't we find them here in the midwest? In 40+ years of detecting I've never found one, nor do I know anyone who's found one around here. Curious.

    This is an awesome "feel good" story, Drew. I'm glad you didn't give up on finding an heir. Stories like this give all detectorists a better reputation.

    There's nothing like finding a seated coin, and when it's an older seated (with arrows!) it's even better! That one has seen a lot of circulation. If only it could talk!
