    The collapsed cellar hole chimney copper spill!

    Got out with my buddy, Danny, this past Sunday for our first colonial cellar hole hunt in a month due to the weather. We both got skunked at the first site. We then moved onto another hammered site not far away. That's when it happened. I walked up to the collapsed chimney in the cellar hole and started to scan the rocks hoping that something may have been secreted in the rocks before it collapsed. I got a beautiful signal and started pulling rocks out and found one of the nicest Wood's Hibernia's I have ever seen. It's a 1723.

    But wait, there's more! Scanning the rocks again I got another signal and pulled out what is possibly a Charles II farthing. This one remains to be definitely identified. But wait, there's more! Scanning again and moving rocks like Hulk Hogan I found a mid-1600's Liard De France!

    The excitement and the thought of finding a cache crossed both mine and Danny's mind but that was all for now. We need to go back and I will be moving even more rocks to see if there could be something else in that hole. Could there be more?Click image for larger version.

    Sorry, I had George II stuck in my pea brain. It's a Wood's Hibernia which is George I. The reverse is not as nice but still decent and you can clearly see the date. I didn't take a photo before posting this thread. I will take one and add it to the post.Click image for larger version.

    Congrats. And good on you for checking the hearth , around it and chimney.

    Such a place time was spent often. An ambitious small youth cooped up too long may have squirreled some coins without knowing their value....Or an adult banked them there because they had the good fortune to have some.

    Is there more Dunno. But when they were put there they were worth plenty..!

    I heard also that later US official coppers depicting Liberty would be placed on a window sill - if the home had one, for luck. And of course, coppers were tossed in to help preserve potatoes.

    Great finds !
