    Cache Found (Updated With New Photos)

    Hi guys, Well today I finally found my first cache other than a few coins in a hole. I was detecting a wooded area in a old neighborhood. I got a strong signal overtop of a flat big rock on the surface. I moved the rock dug down about 8 inches and out pops this box. I shook it for the sound of coins but didn't hear much. I put it in my pouch and went on hunting.

    When I got home a few hrs ago the box appeared to be sealed with some kind of solder. I went down to the basement got some wire cutters and started to cut it open. I started to see a cloth and was able to pull a earing out. I then knew I had something. I saw a pocket watch also. I was very excited to open it up and see what was in it.

    Some of the stuff appears to be gold and silver but not marked. I haven't done much to the stuff but rinse it and scan it for you guys. There was a small coin inside the compact thing with the old English writing. It has on the front a eagle on a shield with a star badge under it that looks like the one's police use. The back has alot of writing but I have to look over it with a loop. It is also dated 1861 1866. The medal I found says 35th annual encampment Pennsylvania divisions of veterans u.s.a. It says at the top delegate. One the back it has the picture of the capitol. It says on the front 1915 phila.

    Wish I knew who and why this was buried. I am guessing it was buried in the teens. Let me know what you guys think. I don't know much about this stuff and the brand watches. I will leave more info as I look the stuff over and as you guys reply to it.

    Thanks again HH Jer

    That is FANTASTIC. I am looking at the cuff links and wondering if they are real diamonds. the watches alone are worth a nice amount and I believe the Medal could be worth a lot more than oyu think. You really need to research it. Great Finds. I dont know if I could Type after all that. Nice work JerDFX.HH Keep us posted on your story here.

    That is an absolutely FANTASIC find! My regards!

    I especially love the one bracelet that still has the price tag on it! Some of this stuff may be very, very valuable.. ?if you don't know Pappy from the TreasureQuestXLT board, here's his thread where people ask him what stuff is - please visit this and link him here. He'll be able to tell you what most if not all of what that stuff is!

    Again, congratulations!

    (just makes you stop and think of all those "big iron signals that were too deep to dig....")

    Very Cool find. Way too go. I have heard of several catches being found under rocks. One was a jar of silver dollars in a flower bed at a old house. So start moving those rock guys.

    Good Job- I bet your hand was shaking.
    What a thrill! Is that blood on that cloth or just rust?

    Way to Go
