    Floris man finds coin collection in his backyard

    FLORIS — Art Cochell has discovered a coin collector’s paradise in his own backyard.

    A couple years ago when he was tearing down part of an old clothesline pole on his property, Cochell noticed some antique coins on the ground that had fallen from the severed pipe.

    Cochell has lived at the residence for around five years now. He had heard a rumor that the man who lived in the house prior had put coins down the clothesline pole

    He found a few coins a couple of years ago and is just now thinking he might vacuum the rest out?

    I need to invent a shop-vac-detector....save on digging
    I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow

    Well, IF His clothes Lines are like Mine.
    Digging them up will ad another Problem.

    The Clothes lines in my yard are incased in Cement.

    ALOT OF CEMENT

    I Dug one up a couple years ago
    had to hook a Chain to it & Pull
    it out with My Jimmy in 4 wheel drive.
    wasn't easy.

    Now you have it out.
    Cement isn't easy to Crack
    let alone Lift it up & Dump it out.
    when you got a boulder size lump.

    He would probably do best as he is
    till the time comes.

    Then
    looks like with it sawed off
    he could maybe Hook a chain to the
    ball of cement & Flip it upside down.

    Hopefully the Cement was Dry Before Being used for a Bank.

    And Who Knows, Maybe it's not in
    Cement but in a Large Barrel
    Or Cement Vault Built for the Purpose

    Jeff ...thats exactly how mine were put in....I dug one out and the cement around the bottom was at least two feet across and two feet deep...the hole was at least 3 x3.....I hooked the John Deere riding lawn mower to pull it out.....the second one I hired the neighbor boy to dig it and gave him twenty bucks ...it was worth it!
