    where would someone hide their valuables, money etc in a place like this?

    I got permission to hunt this property, and where would people hide money at in a place like this? I took my detector inside and ran it around the floors and walls etc...any ideas where someone might have hid something and forgot about it, or maybe passed away and never told anyone where it was hid? no foundation, house is sitting right on the dirt. some of the floor boards are rotted and or missing, I put my small coil down there everywhere boards were missing but did not get any hits.

    any ideas where I might check..........just in case?

    Check around the bases of trees, fence posts - and under the floor boards of the house.

    Also, definitely in the outbuildings - and any brick or concrete work (see if one is loose).

    Also, there could be some great old newspapers in the walls.

    so far I found 3 wheaties in the field directly in front of the house, I was JUST sure they'd be indians but was not to be, there were early wheats though from the teens. Hope to pull some indians from this place. This place is iron infested BIG time too. I dug some large iron out today but wow, it is over whelming how much is here. I am using the smallest coil I have for my xterra 70, and going snail slow

    Maybe around those trees. Is there evidence of an outhouse? Howbout the attic or in an old flu cleanout. Perhaps along a path to the out house or to a connecting road. Or could be anywhere around the house or other buildings.
    Neet looking place, could be some goodies there.

    so far I am hunting the field directly in front of the house, there is only 10 feet of grass then it is field, coins in the field are never more than 2-3" deep because it is plowed every year. Besides the small coil on the exterra is pretty powerful and can punch pretty deep. There is NO choice of a larger coil with this much iron. You need something small to work in between the iron, it is in EVERY SINGLE swing

    I know it's not the same thing... but it'll answer ALL your questions about WHERE to hunt around the house.

    Also consider; if they didn't have much - then they didn't lose much.

    Good luck!

    Under the inside window trim pieces ( mouldings), Check top of any doors for holes bored down in from the top, many gold coins have been found this way. Is there a rumor that these people had money, if not then you won't find it.........NGE

    no rumor, I am not even sure who origannly lved here, the farmer bought the land to farm it, and just never tore anything down, just farms around it

    Add this to what has already been posted.
    If you can find a well. Look for loose bricks all the way down to arms length.
    Also look for loose bricks around the fireplace.
    Inside corners of dirt floors all buildings.
    look for depressions in the ground around and behind buildings and detect them.
    If you like old bottles you could dig the privy and see what turns up.
    Probably wont find a cache without the large coil.
    Treasure hunting for caches takes a lot of digging trash, Just part of the deal.

    Good luck

    Try to think which window would be the bedroom. Then go inside and look out the window as if you was in bed. This was a way for the farmer to keep a eye on his hiding place. If he could see it when he was in bed he could see if someone was trying to steal it. AS no one would be looking for it in the day time.....Matt

    I'm jealous, looks like a great place to play even without an MD.

    I'd be very surpirised to think you got no signals under the floor boards, did you have iron notched out? Open up the discrimination and have it inside the place. Ask the farmer if you can remove the floor entirely. Rats burrowing underneath the place would have taken things into their dens, mostly cloth bits, some with buttons attached and a few corn cobs. Every now and then a coin may been pushed or fallen into that pathway as well. If farmer gives you okay to remove the floor, dig out and check it carefully a full two feet deep.

    That is a neat old homestead to hunt for sure. It's fun to just sit back and imagine what life was like during it's occupation time. I see children playing under the large tree; a farm lifestyle with cattle, h orses and feeding, milking in the barn. No indoor plumbing or electricity in early years. Try to think what it was like during the time the coins you found were being lost. Remember the the first 30 years of the 1900's were turbulent years. WWI,Influensa epidemic,depression,banks crashed. All these events caused people to hide or bury valuables. Where? Old timers have told me to always look where it could be added to or retrieved without being viewed by anyone. The house, cellar, outhouse, barn and sometimes the well were logical sites. Just digging up items at sites like this is fun as it lets you peer into a lifestyle of long ago. Have a ball, Goes4ever and let us see more finds.
