    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!!

    Now to go view the video that others have mentioned.
    Make sure you finish your breakfast before you watch the video, because you'll spit it all over the place!!!

    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?

    Why isn't every metal detector at least water resistant? A $7 drugstore flashlight is guaranteed for life to 10 feet. If a squirrel piss*s onto the face of my sov... well.... thats another forum.

    As Mark said, we were lucky to find a few new sites that we could detect on after he did some research. Me, Mark (49r Relics) and Ron Swenson (Ron CA) were all on this hunt and we all started detecting the site, spread out in different directions. It was my first day out with my new XP Deus so coming from a Minelab I knew I had better step my game up with Mark and Ron swinging CTX's. It was literally my first good repeatable signal that started this off. One thing to keep in mind is none of these were hard to hear and any decent detector on the market would have heard any of these. And any one of us 3 could have been the first to find one these. But it was definitely my day as I dug that 1864 Seated Half (I was lucky enough to have dug my first seated half earlier in the year) so I was pretty jazzed when this popped out. It was too late to video it because I had already popped it out. The rest of the hunt is history now but it could have been any of us!!

    We went back to this site several times and countless hours were spent searching for more. Only relics, no more coins from this site.

    Thank you for all the comments on the other thread!

    Just a question and if has been asked already I missed it. Looking at the profiles of the halves there's iron staining on at least 6 of the halves, was this because of iron around them, or could it of been that they were in a metal container? It's just that when watching the video the coins seemed to be in just dirt and there wasn't any iron staining around in the soil. Maybe it's hard to view on a video and would of been more evident to you when the plug was turned over and the recovery was made.

    Once again thanks-this is what dreams are made of right there.
    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
