    Quarters Quarters and more Quarters!

    Me and Dale32 took our MDs out to a disclosed location yesterday. It started out average, a few dimes, pennies, quarters. Then out of no where we hit the jackpot. In about 15 minutes we found a total of 98 quarters! Can't wait to go back. Why do you think there were than many quarters there? Any similar experiences?

    Pictures or it didnt happen!!! LoL.

    Jokes aside,Great job guys! No idea why there were so many quarters because you left the location undisclosed, Without area info i could speculate a thousand different reasons there were so many quarters! i.e. Remnants of a childs piggy bank after a house fire,Quarter toss at a state fair,Bank loss after a flood, etc etc etc. No matter the reason though,Get out there and get the rest.

    The most I ever found was 40 on a small hill behind a concession stand at a soccer field.

    lucky-thirteen John is right: w/o a little more clue as to the type of site you were hunting, no one's going to have an answer to this.

    But here's one (again, would depend on the site): I heard of a couple of guys who got to hit a sand volley-ball court behind some old university frat houses. They got something like 200 quarters in the space of just an hour or two, while getting much fewer dimes, pennies, etc... Just mostly quarters, as fast as they could dig in this sand. They figured it out later, when the realized that college students had this drinking game during parties, called "quarters". I don't know how it's played, but it has some sort of dare that.... you have to slam a beer each time you fail to get a certain toss or game or something to do with the quarters. Guess I was a nerd in college, 'cuz I never played this game , haha

    Alright I'll probably have to kill you after telling you this but we went to a boat landing. There is an area up on a hill with a few volleyball courts and picnic tables up by this huge pavilion. We had checked the volleyball courts, and found a substantial amount of coins. But near the road, about 20 yards from the pavilion, is where the action happened. They were all just under the grass, didn't even touch my trowel the whole time. Even just scooted around on my knees with my pinpointer and picked up a few.

    another possibility, is if there was a tree-branch above the spot, is the ethnic mexican thing (am I allowed to say that here?) of "pinatas". Here where I'm at in CA, we have a lot of emmigrants from down south (d/t they follow the agriculture, and we're close to the border, etc....). Some of them have an interesting cultural thing they do with pinatas for the kids: Not only are those pinata stuffed with candy, but sometimes it's a custom to stuff them with coins. The idea being: when the pinata finally busts open, the coins go sprawling the ground (or grass as the case may be), and the kids get to scurry around on all-fours picking them up as fast as possible. As such, a friend of mine who ran into a few of these spots (at a county park in my area where a lot of those "fiestas" went on), encountered some spots under prominent branches, where he'd litterally be on his knees for an hour picking up coins within the grass. He didn't say if they were "quarters" or not though, but .... who knows.
