Thread: Awesome Pocket Spill

  1. #1

    Awesome Pocket Spill

    I was detecting my way through the woods along a stone wall headed for a cellar hole and Bam 13/45 out of nowhere. Usually an old beer can for me but not this time. The coins are a 1798 1/2 Reale, 1816 LC, a no date Drape Bust LC and a smooth copper. Stuck the probe in the hole and they just kept coming.

    Wow. That's a crazy bunch there. Guessing the smooth one is a CT copper since the rest of them are within 18 years of each other. Silver seems to be most forgiving in the ground here. I've gone along the stone walls and yet to find stuff near any of them. What made you dig if you thought it was an old beer can? Obvi it paid out to dig. Let me know if you need help with the cellar hole.

    Todd coils apparently over the only coins in the whole woods! We spent hours there afterwards and found nada.... It was a great discovery...

    A great discovery! Todd coils apparently swung over the only coins in the whole woods! We spent hours there on another day and found nada.
