    11 other unidentified coins or with partial information, 4 of these are holed
    That is quite an assortment of coins. Something bad must have happened to the original owner. I'm surprised there wasn't any gold in the mix. I didn't scroll through all the posts, so sorry if you already answered this - did you find any other relics that would indicate a camp or structure was there?

    Now that's what i call a suspense thriller! Every time the shovel went close to the hole, my jaw clinched and i jumped with fear. Thank goodness it all worked out.

    BTW...Awesome recovery
    A yard a day keeps the blues away!

    LOL! Yeah, that's one target area of improvement for Lily. She gets on a roll and all excited when digging when she needs to be a little less aggressive. She once found a 1730 Potosi 1 real and dinged it pretty good with her shovel!

    We've searched the general areas several times and found a few individual coins from the era and many 49ers-era relics. My best find was a gold nugget, probably dropped on the way back from California.

    Very historic find. Could make your very own museum exhibit with this! This is American history in physical form, should keep it all together and on display somewhere.
