Simply Amazing!! The video and your finds will run through my mind from now on when I'm swinging my coil, always thinking what's in the next hole? I've watched the video 3 times, as I'm looking out the window at 3 inches of snow on the ground and 20 degrees........................aahhhh, California Dreaming
Great finds and superb video, thanks for sharing it with us! CONGRATS!!

Love the video and a huge congratulations!! You didn't have it posted by the time I went to bed. I wake up this morning and it's banner already! I'm not surprised but I would have like to get my vote in. Two thumbs way up to both of you. It's magazine material all the way!!

Wow, congrats, those have to have been placed deliberately. has anyone come up with a possible explanation as to why the coins are all similar, yet seem to be spread out relatively consistently over such a large area?

Hey thanks pepperj, I'm not sure why there is iron stainin on the coins. They were in an area where their was some iron but I wouldn't think enough to stain them. It's possible they were in a container at one point in time I guess. I will post some beter pics of the 92 and 93 later today. And I posted a link to the video at the top of the post. Thank you everyone again for the comments.

Excellent cache!! Being in CA I can imagine it was a gold miner's cache. Often back then if you were the type of person to go out west and mine for gold, you are also the type of person that would hoard/burry your money. Excellent recovery man!and congrats on the banner

I'm a bit late to the party but great finds and another well deserved banner.
