    Well done boys,!!

    Not sure I would call it a cache... But it does seem one heck of a spill.
    I think they would be more concentrated if they were in a cache.

    But lets not pick nits.
    Great stuff. glad it was you.

    Good to look back on in a dry spell.
    Congrats.

    One of the best stories I've ever read on T-Net! Finding Large Cents like shooting fish in a barrel, how crazy is that? Congrats on a truly memorable day! Chalk one up for woods hunting! By the way, I'm just curious, what state are you in and approximately how many acres are these woods?

    Thanks to all for comments. We are in New York and the site is probably 10-20 acres depending on how you consider it (has different parts to it and we still aren't sure how much was active with people so it could expand or contract as we figure that out). My new theory I woke up with this morning is these coins fell out of pockets as someone or a few people were dismounting or mounting horses to water them. There's an old pond (now empty) right there. If they fell out of pockets while walking, standing or sitting, some wouldn't have gone a few feet away, but off a horse they would have spread a little. Because they were all Large Cents, it leads me to believe only a few people lost all the coins. Otherwise, if it were a lot of people losing them, there would have been different kinds of coins. The empty pond is swampy now, but I could see it drying up in the Summer if we got a decent period without rain. Then we have to hit that good.

    Instead of mumbling about hating out-Easters who find even one LC fairly often, I'll just say that Johnny Appleseed must have been short of actual seeds one day and started flinging (large) pennies.

    Or else someone was being chased and was jettisoning weight to gain speed, like they used to throw belts of .50 caliber out of B-17's limping back to Britain.

    Great hunt!! Thanks for the story & pics.
