    I dug a Pre-WW2 coin-stash..........

    Hello friends, well the metal detecting gods smiled on me yesterday as I went out for a typical day of metal detecting. Turns out it was anything BUT a normal day as you shall see. I decided to go deep into the woods behind this old picnic grove (circa 1850).

    First hour was better than usual: dug 2 Indianheads 1889 & 1907, then 2 wheats 1912 & 1920 plus an old cufflink and possible a suspender clasp?

    Second hour gets interesting. Came across a dead tree in the woods and swiped my detector under it and sounded offf like a tin can but with muliple VDI's :quarter, dime, etc., you get the picture.........Dug the hole about 6 inches and staring me in the face is a Barber Quarter, pulled it out, and can see multiple coins in the hole, some loose and some stuck together. What a friggin' rush. Didn't need my detector, just kept sticking my fingers in the hole feeling for coins and took them out of the hole one by one. Then I scanned the hole with my detector and got a few more making sure I didn't miss any. When all was done, there were 25 coins in that hole ranging from 1908 to 1941.

    The coin breakdown: 1908-O Barber Quarter, 1913 Barber Dime, Mercury Dimes: 1920, 1924, 1928-S, 1939, 1941. Buffalo Nickels: 1918, 1920, 1923, 1923, 1926, 1935, 1935. Jefferson Nickels: 1938, 1940, 1940, 1940, 1941, 1941. Wheaties: 1920-D, 1934, 1938, 1940, 1941.

    A most memorable day in my life detecting. Thanks for looking, and yesssssssssss there are coin stashes and caches still out there.........Rich

    With guys like you around there aren't gonna be any caches left for me to find before I get my DFX figured out.

    What an awesome find.

    My ability to learn and grow may be my greatest asset.

    Looks like sometime in 1941 somebody was having a "picnic" in the woods and lost all their pocket change. Hmm.

    Awesome find!

    You're not implying that there might be a few "Merry Widows" cans lying around there, are you?
