    Thanks!

    Here another pic of items found on the last hunt. They are small pieces of silver cut from sheets and a melted drop. This is common for jewelers to work with this type of material. So it would be safe to say...that there was a jeweler of some type on this property at one time. Its not a great find but now we know where the chains came from.

    I will post any new info.

    We are headed back to this site this weekend. Have a TDI now and will see if that helps find some more items that we missed.

    Any other ideas?

    Wow...we had a beautiful day today to hunt...about 50 degrees...great for this time of the year. Got to the site today and the owner was there. He said ....your still looking? I said can you blame us? He laughed. I asked why the property hadnt been developed yet. He said because there was a gas station there at one time years ago and the ground had to be inspected etc. So, good for us...more time to hunt!

    We picked another area about 100 feet from where we mostly have been hunting before....remnants of a foundation was evident. I got the TDI out and started the hunt. I got lots and lots of "grunt" signals. This went on for about 2 hours. Then, when I set my detector down...I heard something. I checked it again....it was a nice tone. I got a silver dime! Then, about 30 mins later, I had one signal screaming at me.....up popped a nice Ben Franklin Half Dollar. I thought we one the right track. I got many signals that sounded like silver dollars but no luck. I did manage to find 4 silver rings....one smashed somewhat. Got a few dollars in clad and one war nickel. We may have found a hot spot today but no large silver. In any case....it was nice to see SILVER again at this site.

    I was hoping for some more silver dollars today but lets hope for next time!

    I'm sure we don't have to tell you to keep us posted on what else you find!
    Truly amazing lifetime adventure you guys are having finding the silver hoard!
    I'm mystified why gold isn't turning up, when there's evidence of a jeweler having been there.
    The best of luck on your continuing adventure, and thanks for taking us along for the ride, it's thrillingly awesome!!!!

    Well maybe there is a chest of gold someplace? We have tried to keep gold in mind when hunting but just none so far has turned up. I suppose it could be that this "jeweler" just worked with silver. Silver was all the rage back in the 70s and there is some indication that these items could have been lost/buried about that time. When the chest of gold turns up....I will send you some for your good wishes!

    The weather was nice so I decided to hunt this site a little while. NO cache today but a couple interesting items. Possibly additional clues to the age of all the items.

    I have invited several others to detect this site with me soon and hopefully we will find something good!

    You should look at old county maps or USGS maps and see what has been there in the past! I can't imagine all of that just fell in the same area over time, clearly it was a cache or there was a bank once upon a time or something! Amazing find! HH.

    We did go back but nothing to speak of was found. If anyone has any ideas on what to do next.....I would listen. I'm sure "something" is still there....just a question of how much. ;-)
