    Cache detector suggestions appreciated

    Hi all. I've always been impressed with the experts here and would like some advice. I bought a department store detector several years ago that suited a hunt I was on at the time. Now, I need to make sure I'm armed with adequate technology. I'm searching cellar holes that may include the homestead of a wealthy colonial era individual. Target: a small chest or keg of gold coin. Assumptions: chest deep at the time, with cellar filled in a few more feet with debris since then. Add an error margin to that and we're in the ten foot range. Such a target could easily be missed by the coin shooters. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    The poor man's ground penetrating radar technology is called a backhoe.

    You are in 2Box territory. There is a lot of small trash like nails from the building which the 2Box won't detect. It will detect a box or keg of gold coins to about 12'. Frank

    Thanks Frank. Will look up two box units.
