    Epic Holey Seated Coin Cache Dug

    I haven't been getting to hunt as much as I'd like to this year as my wife and I had a baby girl in May. She's a doll, but those of you with kids know the drill

    Anyhow, my wife asked me what I wanted for my birthday this month and I told her I wanted to go detecting for a few days at one of our old haunts, and to my amazement she said OK

    I was planning to go with TomCA, but he wasn't able to make it and I ended up going solo. This is a remote Spanish outpost site that we researched years ago. Tom's less crazy about it then I am, but I like the history around it and it's continued to produce interesting finds. It's a relaxing, beautiful place to detect, that just invokes early western frontier history, and almost every relic or coin you dig is dripping with age and history (for our neck of the woods that is).

    Anyhow, I had planned to use my Multi Kruzer with a new 7" concentric coil to work in the iron, but due to a headphone issue, I had to switch over to my Equinox 800. Boy am I glad I did, I made one of my best finds to date! A seated coin cache that I will never forget digging, and not just a seated coin cache, but a coin cache/spill with a hole mystery Was it Indian trade jewelry?

    Here's they are in all their glory:

    Holey Moley! 😱 Any evidence of a chain or lanyard of any kind? Had to have holed them to string them on something, I'd think.

    Maybe they were strung on a wire so they would jingle when someone was walking Like spurs or a rattle? Way cool what ever reason they were holed.

    Very cool find! Whether those holes were for buttons, or a bracelet, or just to keep them all together, lucky for you it didn't work! I'm thinking Tom is wishing he had gone! Congrats man!

    If there's no dirt under your nails, you're not trying hard enough.

    Someone strung up their coins so they wouldn't lose them, but then the string broke loose and they lost them all. String disintegrated over time and the hoard of holy coins remained! Or maybe the coins were buttons on a homemade shirt and the shirt got lost and disintegrated leaving the 'coin buttons' behind! Very cool!
    Let history be your treasure map .
