    94 Indians In The River

    While taking pic's & looking for arrowheads yesterday, I was walking in a dry section of a local river, I saw this metal object & gave it a nudge with my boot, it was a tin can, the lid came off & it was (full to the brim with coins).
    after collecting my wits about me, I started taking pic's, & hurried home to clean them.
    The whole can was full of rust , & coins were even sticking together, so by noon the next day, (today), I finished cleaning them the best I can for now, they had been in a tobacco sack with a drawstring, in the can.
    Totals were.............1 peace dollar
    1 Silver coin from the Netherlands
    4 walking liberty halves
    10 mercury dimes
    13 V nickels
    1 Barber half dollar
    2 Barber quarters
    1 flying eagle quarter
    94 Indian head pennies (oldest 1864)
    9 buffalo nickels
    4 recent nickels
    15 foreign coins (nothing very good)
    20 wheat pennies ( 30's, 40's, 1 shot with a bullet)
    1 token (Good For 5 cents in trade), slick on the back
    1 sheild nickel 1836 (the best I can tell)

    Not a 'bad haul' for me. :P

    Incredible find! I wonder when the can was set there. How recent were the "recent" nickels?

    One more rain & the can would have burst, it was so fragile, my theory is someone burgurlarized a house, got cold feet, & tossed them in the river, it was below a low water crossing.
    The coins ranged from 1836 to some in the 1990's, nickels were in the 40's range.
