    Found a little buried treasure here recently , here's a video of it

    We were recently contacted by a gentleman who heard we were good with our detectors and needed our help. Joey , Kandi and I went to the aid of this guy who felt sure his mom had buried money in the yard. His dad had passed away and his mother has gotten to the point she doesnt even recognize him anymore.Well he lives in Texas and came back to SC to clean up and get his parents home ready to sell. Well this guy had no idea what he was in store for when he started cleaning up the place. He realized his parents didnt believe in banks! The guy told us he found stash's of cash and coin literally everywhere in the home! He showed me a closet full of about 40 pocketbooks and every one was stuffed with cash. It was behind the walls, in the mattress's, in every book in the house , in greeting cards, christmas cards. He even found some stuffed in frozen vegetables in the fridge! He's had to go through everything! She had 25 handguns, antique firearms. He said she was a classic hoarder and they loved antiques. The stuff in their was mind boggling and he's steadily going through it all. he has receites where she bought gold coins and gold bars valued in todays prices at about 300,000 dollars and has yet to locate but about 10 coins. It's there somewhere he hopes! Well here's our little adventure recently. I didnt take my camera thinking we wouldnt find anything, luckily Kandi brought hers. he offered us a reward and dinner but we declined saying we were just glad to help. I hope you enjoy it. He was pretty happy as he knows there's no way he'd ever have recovered the stuff we found. It was a foot deep next to a cement block foundation in the basemment.

    These stashes do exist...It is just rare that they are ever recovered, if not by the original owner.

    What a cool story. A friend was remodeling a house for an owner. He found a wall stacked with cash between the studs. He said he almost had a heart attack. He called the owner and was given a very nice bonus. Ended up punching holes between every stud in the house after that. This stuff happens more than you think.
    Good job helping a person in need.
