    Metal arrowhead found in the same area as an 1860 dime. I believe it is copper.

    These are some fantastic finds. The gold coins are in really great shape.

    It’s very unusual how clean they were straight from the ground! I have a theory as to how they got there. This area has 2 concrete slabs about 2x2. There were some statues on them. I believe this was a garden or hangout area, which explains all the odd finds.

    I think one of the attorneys that lived here in the 40s may have stashed gold here because of bank distrust of the times. He moved out because of heart issues. I’m guessing he chose an obvious place between the statue and the creek fence line about 20’ away. I bet he went to retrieve his stash and dropped a couple pieces in the ivy and the two rolled away. He would have been too old to unhealthy to find it.

    I could be wrong, but I’ll keep searching. Going to use a sensor that goes deeper. I don’t know if someone in the 1940s would have gold from 1880. Also, they are so clean they almost seem hardly used, which would have been too old to be his.

    bonedoctor, first thank you for sharing with us! Second, the modern day location of the edge of the drop-off down to the river bed should have seen some changes caused by rain/snow melt and the simple fact that 'stuff' falls downhill. I would plant a tall stick in the ground at the top of the embankment so that a person down hill a good distance can see it as a guide and then I would detect the area say five to ten feet to either side of the stick for any signals.

    The Ivy if thick enough would have held the hillside together at least somewhat and I would not disturb it very much as erosion starts with very little disturbance of natural ground cover.

    I would speculate that with the dates you've given most anything could be a possibility as to what has been dropped or buried on the property. The old fence line could be used as a guide, the theory is that folks used the posts as a marker for their buried money/valuables. Another 'typical stash location' would have been in view of a house window or doorway.

    The old maps available from historical surveys, property line adjustments and the older the better as really old building or house sites tend to fade away over time though at times clues are there, corner stones, etc.

    Do you own a Drone w/Video capability? Arial views done in tightly controlled sweeps up and down the property might reveal some interesting insights??

    You've an exciting project in front of you though it will take time and work to perform a worthwhile search and even then a place is never hunted out as newer machines "see deeper" and come with
    improved electronics to "see deeper", etc. Best of Success.............63bkpkr

    Of course the gold will get most of the limelight (they are great finds) but this serpent side plate from a trade gun is also a fantastic find!
    Not sure of the age or model but a complete one from a Northwest trade gun can sell for several hundred dollars with even older ones reaching the thousand dollar mark!
    The screw hole configuration is much different than what I'm used to so, I think more modern but well within the timeline you mention. I'll do some more research on that one.
    The copper arrow point (made from recycled metal) goes well with this find and now I am curious about your rings. Maybe you have trade rings too?
    You've made some great finds and one can only wonder what potential your property has!
    A metal detector can only do so much..........
    It's up to you to do the rest!

    Hey! That is actually an antique hanger. You can see the left side has a broken prong on the lower side. It was able to swivel.
