Broke the bank today. My wife and I went to a local lake to do some detecting. We were detecting around some boats where they line the shore at a campground. We started to pop some Mexican money and we're quite happy to get a few. As we rounded a boat our detectors lit up. We found the spill of a lifetime. By the time we were done we had 48 Mexico centavos of various denominations from 1940-1962. She had 21 and I had 27 plus a 1918S winged liberty that came out of the park. I did give a Mexican coin to a boy that was watching. Here are all our finds.

Very well done. Thanks for posting. Were the boats pulled up on shore or on traulers or in the water ?

This is at an inland lake at a campground. The campers bring their boats and line them up along the shore. There was a large pontoon parked over the spot so I know there are more. Just don't know why there's so many in one spot.
