This is a walking away from the car story for a change. I was walking through the woods toward an area with stone farmer walls that I intended to search. I was casually swinging as I walked the trail when I got a high tone about six inches from the trail edge. I rescanned and got mixed signals and VDIs. I dug the hole and found a leather change purse about five inches down. I could not resist opening it, and immediately saw the half dollar as shown in the first picture. Coins started spilling out the corroded back of the purse, so I put it in my bag right away and picked up the fallen coins. I found nothing else the rest of my hunt, and could only think about what might have been in my bag. When I got home I sorted the coins. Sixteen silvers, including the half, 8 Washington quarters, 4 Mercury dimes, 2 silver Rosies, and a 1944 silver nickel. Also had a few wheat pennies, several Jefferson nickels, and a Buffalo nickel. Twenty-four coins total! While none of these coins are particularly old or unique, it sure was exciting finding them this way, and on the first hole.. Happy Hunting. Good luck out there.
