    $150.00 in Silver Half & Quarter Dollar Pieces thrown into Jones Falls in 1873

    The Jones Falls is a 17.9-mile-long stream in Maryland. It is impounded to create Lake Roland before running through the city of Baltimore and finally emptying into the Baltimore Inner Harbor.

    the Murder took Place in East Baltimore, So the Money was probably Thrown in
    somewhere in that area.

    Being such a Long area, it could have been thrown in Anywhere,
    But due to over 140 years of water action some movement most likely happened.

    The Basin ? if that helps

    That's still some Nice silver spread out somewhere along the line.

    May be worth Thinking about if ever swinging along the Banks of the Stream
    Where there are Boulders that Catch Things.

    more detailed
    the box could contain over 400 Pieces of Silver quarter Size & Larger.
    That's allot of Weight. if sunk into air free mud, there is a chance the tin box could be
    still there and intact.
