    Missed this one... definite Banner find.

    Now... this find is sending my mind back to the many times many of us have come across a pipe such as that and moved on thinking it was just a water line and just filled back in.

    Makes me wonder... HARD !

    SO... let me ask... what was first sight ? in other words... how was the pipe laying in ground ?... and what part did you first see ? end ?

    What made you continue to dig or tipped off to something other than just piping ?

    Congrats on the stellar find.

    The pipe was horizontal about 8 inches deep. I was looking for a big loud signal of anything that would indicate a large container. I dug it from one end and popped it out with the cap end out first. I tipped it up on it's end and you could hear shaking noise internally, kind of a "ching" "ching" sound. I knew I was onto something but there was no way that top was coming off without a blowtorch as it had been buried for 70+ years. The idea of storing money in a pipe actually makes tremendous sense as piping was cheap, secure and could be put into the ground anywhere. It's also easier to hide in plain site although this was buried. Even though it's been 5-6 months since I found it I still go back and look at the pics once a week just to reflect on it.

    Wow, just wow oh wow. I haven't been checking up much on T-net this year and totally missed this posting.

    Like probably many others I think of caches in tin cans, fruit jars and metal boxes but not pipes, makes perfect sense.

    Great story and so happy you could find it for the family!
