We just moved into a new house that was built in the 1920's... we have about 1.2 acres of woods outback of our home, our neigbhor which my family has known for a long time saw me playing with my MD in the yard..so he asked me if i found anything interesting yet. He told me that in the back corner of our lot about 20 feet away from our marker there is about a 6x9 spot staked out by some old pieces of 1/2 in pipe that is on a border of our property and another so its not 4 intersecting property lines. There used to be a old brick yard about 100 yards to the left, and there was stories when they were a kid of an old hermet living in a small home in the woods who would "hoard" alot of money. I ran my MD over the area and am getting a strong hit for about a 2x3 area. i began to dig and i hit a layer of layed brick . I stopped there and havent dug anymore since should i take the time to pop the bricks up? and dig some more or am i just wasting my time .

What kind of strong hit. What machine ya using.

If it's on your property, the only thing you have to waste is time as you said, so I'd say dig em up - the worst that can happen is that you cleaned up a bunch of bricks out of a corner of your lot. The best that could happen is..... well.... $$$

Lets put it this way, what if you saw a $100 bill laying on the ground and nobody was around....would you get on your computer and ask a jillion people what to do, or simply bend over and pick it up?

Been awhile and no update... Hopefully it didn't turn out to be a bricked over well... There are two bricked over cisterns on my dads one acre.

Sorry about taking so long with a reply, it was actually a pretty large area in the end and was the loading dock foundation from the old brick factory...found some nails, pennys but no silver
