    Dig it up
    Put it up
    Shut up

    Keep the 35mm film can, I've sold several to camera collectors for between $2 - $4.

    Seriously though. Did you finish searching the area? Bet you didn't. Go back and check the rest of the area because we all know you got excited about your find and didn't finish your search.

    BTW Great find!!!! Display it!!!
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I left it under the rock...appeared to be cotton maybe from a tshirt...was still white although dirty in spots...ill grab it when i go back. My impression was that it hadnt been there too long but i have no idea how cloth weathers in that condition or how fast.

    Nice find, but a stash that small was probably put there by the young pirate that stole it. Keep the coins, but put something nasty in the canister and put it back where you found it. Teach him a lesson.

    Yea not worth big $.
    But
    I have never dug a Barber Half (or a Quarter). So I'd TREASURE this Find ; Funny how that works.

    As I would pay just above 'Scrap' price for the Halves if I were to buy them.
    The ' Penny's ' are cool to.

    Keep-em unless somebody asks where they went, IMO Even if wrapped in a Cloth the container held up well , even under a slab, so they may have not been buried that long.

    White cotton tee shirt dirty in spots. Well, IMO, this was recently placed(from mid 2015 to a few weeks ago). The coins themselves are a unique story. The have heavy wear, they were in circulation for a long time before someone pulled them out(early 1940's at the latest). The cents are a bit of a mystery to me. When you first posted, I thought you lived in Canada or near the border.

    Judging by the entire contents, I would say this cache was owned originally by a woman that worked in a bank for a year or less up north before they moved into the area(around late 1940's) and gave it to her husband. One of them was a photographer. This was handed down around late 1960's to early 1980's.

    Now at this point, its a bit sketchy. Up until mid 2015 to a few weeks ago, this may have been stolen and stashed because the person who stole it, got cold feet before he can pawn it.

    (edited that was supposed to be 2015)
