    Clay Pot with Coins Inside!!!!!

    Back to my pals old property and found had a signal close to this pot.
    I had previously picked up lots of surface bottle finds so moved this out of the way to use the pinpointer - but the signal had gone

    Looked inside and saw what turned out to be coins!!!!

    Will try to clean these up a bit, the soil was packed quite hard inside.

    Picture below show the pot (outside and inside) and the coins as found!

    It's OK to be disappointed AFTER you dug it - as long as you never forget; that BEFORE you dug it, it had the POTENTIAL to be life changing!

    the "orange' color has me confused? don't think they are copper - perhaps stained from the clay??

    Fascinating find! Wow! Love the scalloped edge on the one that's more exposed now! Looking forward to seeing them all after slow clean-up. Andi

    Looks like an old Dutch Gin bottle. Bols still makes the same bottles for their gin. The next time you're in the liquor store, check it out.

    When used appropriately, the metal detector is an invaluable tool for the Professional Archaeologist.

    Holy crap Captain, me thinks you might have found some Spanish Gold! The coins while orangish in color and could be confused to be Copper, don't appear to have any corrosion or green veridigris on them. The encrustation if I am correct, should come off pretty easily with Acetone or possibly something else that someone knows will work. I could be wrong but from the details on the coins, they don't appear to be Spanish Coppers (Maravedis) and appear to be Escudos like in the pic below. Here is hoping for you and if they are Gold, then this is another Banner find for you! Congrats! Please update us as soon as possible on what they are (Gold or Copper or other).
