    Treasure Trove Is Revealed on Canadian Farm in 1912. Could there be more?

    Fort Wayne Sentinel September 10, 1912


    Treasure Trove Is Revealed on Canadian Farm.

    Ogdensburg. NY. Sept. 10, 1912

    " A horse kicked a remarkable treasure trove into view on John McEwen's farm, on the Canadian side of the St. Lawrence river. Six pieces of silver flew from the horse's hoof when the animal was being driven across a field. The driver jumped into the horse's tracks and digging with his hands turned up more coins—three Spanish pieces, one British, one five-franc piece and 143 United States half dollars.

    By English law treasure trove goes to the, town, so the coins have been turned over to the police. They date from 1805 to 1828. and they were found buried in straight row? standing on edge, only three inches under ground. Workmen who built the Rideau canal were paid in American silver, it being a part of the indemnity paid by the United States to Great Britain. This money was sent to the canal district in kegs, some of which were stolen and never recovered. It's believed the money found is some of that lost eighty years ago."

    Draped Bust Halves are worth a lot and are beautiful coins, Could there be more? .......GRiley
