I got my 1802 half reale 50 yards from the Mississippi river just south of New Orleans about a year ago. Only 4in deep.
An hour later, a friend pulled a 1856 Canadian coin 40 feet away. A lot of history here!

In CA, those can be found anywhere pre 1855-ish activity took place.

I thought they only "exhumed" corpses from graves.

I tend to think of "our" treasures as "dead and buried" until we uncover and bring it back into the light of day! :hello2:
