    Crazy surface find!

    Coming home yesterday we spotted this box laying on the side of the highway. We turned around to check it out and I couldn't believe what it was. It's two uncirculated silver dollars! One is in a nice display case and the other is sealed in plastic with a cool token. What's the chances of that?

    That is just an insane find. I'd be impressed if you found it at a yard sale. On the side of the road, just unreal. Glad you saved it before it got ran over.

    The one in the plastic case is a 1971 proof dollar. Is it worth anything?

    That is insane! Congrats!

    No digging, no dirt, and it even comes in its own case!
    You lucky dog!

    I'd wonder if it was stolen and reported as such. That could get complicated.

    Are you planning to keep it or attempt to find the owner?

    Nobody in thier right mind would toss them away like trash, imo.

    Unreal!
    I agree with Loco-Digger you were meant to find it!
    Where there was history, there will be trash!

    Do you Metal Detect in your dreams?

    I know I do!
