    1700s cache

    Got up early and took my son detecting to I site I've hit a dozen times. Last two times didn't get anything but was going to try to find trash pit. We walked about a mile in the woods and was just about there and I was hunting the side of the hill beside the original road hoping they threw their trash towards the river. When I got a solid hit. Dug down about 6 inch and got a copper. I filled the hole and then decided to recheck it and got a broken up signal so just started digging deep when my son said what's that. I look over in the pile and see like 10 gren disk scattered in the pile. Think I went in shock then lol. My son reched in the hole and dug out another. I picked up one and could tell it was a kg11 then a kg 111 after that I just bagged them up then swung the coil again and got two more we missed. 16 total 1700s coins. And one flat button about a foot away. I'd say my coolest find yet. Never thought I'd find a cache but seeing post on here new it was possible. Starting to just clean them with a brush and know I got two Connecticuts and a 76 irish and a kg11 and a couple kg111. Have 4 I can't tell yet. What a morning still can't believe it.

    Holy moly. Knowing the sandy area you are likely hunting those coins could be terrific condition too. Careful cleaning. I wouldn't use any liquid. Just brush them. Gotta see a picture of them brushed off. I agree this is likely a banner. I mean if a couple wheat pennies in a tin or wallet can get up there, this sure as heck would.

    Legit banner, and great cross section of what would have been circulating in the late 1780s-early 90s. Likely a coin purse spill vs. cache. I would assume that if no leather remnants were found with the coins then it was a fabric purse that disintegrated.

    A hearty congratulations on a once in a lifetime find!
