    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    In the United Kingdom, you'd have to report such a find as a hoard.What a haul! I am amazed at the condition of these coins that were dug from the ground. You must be a master detectorist who knows how to ignore a signal from a bottle cap or a pull tab so you can zero in on the good stuff. That's quite some treasure you have there. More than they'll ever find on Oak Island...lol

    Congratulations! I'm as green with envy as those colonial coppers from corrosion...lol

    Best regards,

    Incredible finds! And here I am in Oklahoma excited about finding a 1940's wheat penny.

    If the pieces of silver are over 300 years old. But not single coinage, or random drops, no pot was found.

    Wow what a great hunt over a couple of days. The stamped silver is top shelf material-pure eye candy. Now the averages of coppers to silvers is really good.
    Even if you're not able to get out again this would have a person dreaming till the next season. Congrats on the spectacular recoveries.

    I've been watching too many West Country Clegg videos. It seems like everything he finds must be reported to the local Coroner. But of course he always seems to find a hoard of Saxon or Viking gold.

    Thanks jacobgosling. They don't find much on Oak Island so wouldn't be hard to beat them
    Not much junk there although the place is completely covered with colonial period nails. I'm very glad I don't have to go through the pull tabs as I wouldn't have a choice but to dig them considering the location.

    Fantastic find.
    I really like that counter stamp. That really ramps up the likeability meter.

    An "Aureus" was a Roman gold coin. A great name for such a successful treasure hunter. Now for some Gold! Maybe some Half Joes?
