    Now I am a believer !! There are silver caches out there !! 5 and 3/4 lbs worth!

    Yeap !! I am a believer ! I told my wife this early spring that my goal this year metal detecting was to find a 1700,s coin ! my oldest coin thus far was an 1841-O-1/2 dime I found this easter day in this field I had been working all spring! ( if you don't count a large cent I can't get a date from ) before this coin I had found 4 indian heads all in the 1800,s from this field earliest being 1863 but no silver!! HOWEVER I also found 2 colonial copper buttons in this field which were clearly hand made and had no trade mark of any kind ! I considered these 2 finds greater than the 1841-O-1/2 dime . This is why I was concentrating on this field cause I thought it would eventually cough up my 1700,s coin! Well today I did not meet my goal ! But I surpassed it in a way ! I hit a portion of the field near the woods that started producing spoons , 4 of them, Forks 2 of them , and a little bit of pottery ! Ah! a thimble!! not extremely old but relatively deep 6 to 8 inches. Most had been hit by the plow! I now of course suspected there was a house nearby at one time. I was close to the tree line that had actually crept in from the road into the field and decided to hit the strip of woods close to the road to see if I could find a foundation or other evidence of it. I saw an old chimney base about 10 yards off the road in the woods and was actually heading straight for it with M. D. on when I got a strong signal near a really big spruce tree about 20 yards from it ! I used my army shovel scince I was in the woods and did not have to worry about cutting sod and took a big ! scoop out ! signal still in hole GOOD . I THOUGHT I might actually get a silver out of this spot I had been working all week!! another shovel !! signal still in hole and very strong !! I was almost certain I had at least a silver quarter maybe even a half dollar!! scince my M. D. was screaming even with disc ! turned up quite high! Well I'm dragging this story out ! Here is what I found ! A red clay flower pot at 8 inches down filled with silver coins. Take a look, I found this at 5:30 this afternoon and have only had time to weigh what was in the red clay pot!! Yes 5 and 3/4# of coins !! Looks like the latest of them is in the 1940,s I have to go start cleaning and Take an inventory on what I found!! I will post a count later !! HERE IS A PIC OF COINS AFTER I POURED THEM OUT ONTO TO NEWSPAPER ON THE KITCHEN TABLE FOR MY WIFE!! I WILL GIVE YOU A COUNT LATER!! I actually stoped at the grocery store on my way home 2 by a bottle of wine 2 celebrate and I brought the bag of coins in with me and put them on the veggie scale ! 5 and 3/4 pounds worth!!!

    Now that silver would have never made it home if it were me; I'd have died on the spot!

    GREAT find and congratulations!
