    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    Holed coins are normally a result of making them into wearable jewelry. This has been going on for thousands of years, probably since the first coins were made. Before pockets coins were carried in sacks or "pokes". Here in the old northeast we find old coppers with holes in the center which were used as washers on old slate roofs. I found a couple at a colonial era church and the pastor told me they had found a bunch of them still in place when part of the roof as repaired. They were not new coins when originally used on the roof, they were very worn English KG2 and KG3 cents.
    Ya won't find nuthin' if ya don't hunt
