    BERKS COUNTY PA. OWNER REMOVED CASH LEFT ME THE EMPTY CACHE !

    I've been tracking down stories about a Hessian Camp that had been in the area sometime around 1900's. While metal detecting with my DFX, I came across some old foundations. I found nails, an old horse shoe, banding from old barrels. It was getting late so I started home and as I walked past a fairly large flat rock the detector went off. I knelt over and turned the rock over and to my surprise there was a shape of a rim of a metal pot. The pot was about 8" in diameter and was filled with dirt. I dug out the dirt as fast as I could but no coins were there. This was my first cache I found, still looking !

    Hey!

    You think that's bad!?

    1 time I was detecting an old homested property that adjoined a large parcell that was used for a country festival every fall from the mid 1800s thru the early 1900s,

    I had gone over the festival grounds several times before, and found lots of coins, etc. but, this day I was detecting the old homested,

    I was under some large pine trees, and got a signal that about blew my ears off,

    I dug down, and found the edge of a large old metal wash tub (now I'm thinking cache for sure!)

    I uncovered it only to find it full of field stones approx. 4, 5 and 6 inches in diameter,

    as I was pulling it out of the ground, I found another and another (3 total) and all 3 were full of the same = fieldstone

    I worked for about 2 hrs digging, hualing out rocks, and uncovering these oxoxing things- only to find NOTHING!!

    Better luck to BOTH of us next time!

    HH

    Danny Danny Danny, You do realize some of these posts you are bringing back from the dead are several years old?
    Nothing at all wrong with going through and reading them, as some contain valuable info. But unless one has something really constrictive to add, best to let them sleep in peace.
    Just my opinion.

    Jeff
    Thanks for the thumb up. Many of these posts stated out with people seeking treasures, and then no response if they found the treasure. I want to know.

    I for one am glad this post was left archived.

    Partner and I recently hunted a historic cache where part had been found. Found 3 different but closely associated spots where items had apparently been removed and replaced by antique glass jars with ceramic lids still on ... but holding only air. Position of the jars suggested to us that they had been placed in their positions intentionally, and concluded the cache(s) we were looking for and already been recovered, though we could find no references to them.

    Early TH'ers used to hide a jar with rocks (or Dutch oven) at site where treasure was recovered. Why? To alert new discoverer that the cache had already been found. I think this was a little un-nerving at first, but kind of like the knowledge that my research was correct, even if I was a few years too late.
