Got into the woods here in White Plains, looking for an old school house from the 1905 - 1920 era, that was supposed to have been built on top of an older school from the 1800s. I had been out for about an hour before it started raining a bit of ice/sleet, when I got a deep bouncing 34, 36, 37, in Artifact mode. Honestly I almost didn't dig it because I guessed it was big, deep, iron, but I was getting ready to call it a day and hadn't filmed a dig yet. Glad I Dug It! I made an appointment to see a coin guy in Greenwich, tomorrow so I can get them appraised. I am super stoked!!!!:headbang::hello2:

If a guy that's been detecting for 40+ years says it's his best find ever then you know it must be a banner. Congrats on one of the best finds that I've seen posted. And the fact that you recorded it is awesome.

edit: And not to mention the modest thread title.

What an awesome find! Always in the back of my mind that many people buried money in mason jars. I've found a few old mason jars but never with a cache in them. Coingratulations! Pun intended! haha

Amazing ! That's a dream come true Terry !! Most of us will not find a single silver dollar - much less a large cache ! This is a banner worthy find for sure !

When I saw that jar, still in the ground, I was hoping for you. When you pulled it out, and it jingled, the other guys around me, at work, thought I’d stepped on a snake. I hollered loud enough to wake the dead. Brother, I’m so proud for you, I haven’t the words. Congratulations!!
