Ok, so I have been absent a while haven't been metal detecting much, mostly buying storage units. Well after buying about 8 or so and selling at flea markets and holding garage sales, I finally found one worth posting about.

Boxes and boxes full of a coin collection, as well as a brand new safe in the box that appeared unopened. I opened it up to find out more about it, and low and behold it was full of more coins, red and blue seal bills, etc. I will be making a video of the finds soon!

There is a LOT more, several more boxes and still more in the safe!!! :headbang:

The speakers stand out to me. Open up those speakers and see if you find anything else....

LOTS of silver!!! And cash...unbelievable

Ok, so I took the time to separate all the legal tender currency from the commerative stuff, and this is the result from all the boxes and the safe I went through. I took video if me going through the boxes and hope to make a video on YouTube soon, but for now check these pics out. Several hundred in face value alone.
Not all is shone, the green books have lots of coins in them as well!

Nice score! I've never done the storage unit thing, but out of curiosity, why does a person leave stuff like that and walk away? I mean the owner could've paid several months rent with the cash that was in there....
