Yesterday, I hunted just outside of Unadilla NY, along the path of the Old Susquehanna Turnpike. I found four coins only being able to see the date on this one 1787

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.

Were they near each other? Looks like you've found a good spot...I imagine there's more to recover....

They were spaced randomly within a total of a 1/4 mile. Right now they are haying the fields along State Highway 357 and a perfect time to go through find targets mark them and then go back and with a smaller coil and make sure they are real targets then dig them.
