    So, yesterday evening, I decited to spend an hour or so detecting at an old abandoned house that I had gotten permission to hunt a long time ago. It was an open invitation to hunt at any time.
    I'm poking around with a nice haul of clad from the grass driveway and I worked around to the back where I had never hunted before.
    I'm in what looked to be an old garden when I got an Overload hit on my MXT. I pretty much dig everything anyway, and being an odd place for a large piece of aluminum siding or something I decited to dig it. I had about given up on it thinking I had a hot rock or something when I hit metal at about 8". I thought it was just junk at first. After I saw it was an old metal box, like a kids lunch box, I started to get excited. It was pretty rusty.
    As it came out it was extremely heavy, letting me know there is something in it. I quickly opened it up to find a dirty towel. Inside the towel was 1,084 SILVER DIMES!!!! That's $108.40 FACE VALUE!!!! The oldest one is 1916 and they go all the way up to 1964 but stop there. It was as if someone knew that the silver was going to be of value and buried them for later.
    I spent all last night seperating them by date. Funny, and curious, thing is that there is a bunch of each year except for 1955 which there were none at all. I can't figure that out. Any ideas?
    well this post is very old but i'm new to TN any way!, but i want to agree with a replay saying that the 1955 could b the birth date of who ever hide that cache or the house might be built in 1955, or all the 1955'S will be buried some where else inside or outside the property.

    So, here's a crazy question from a newbie... Do you share these types of finds with the property owner? Or, does getting permission allow you to keep your finds?

    Wow, super find!
    I normally don't dig overload signals, as they are usually junk. But now, I'm thinking those could have been caches...! =\

    great haul!

    the 1955 dimes were THE lowest mintage of all those years - so, probably the infrequency of seeing a dime of that year, accounts for them being underrepresented. Great find!
