yesterdays finds

Hunted an old farm in the woods (no buildings left just very old apple trees near a spring) found lots of junk and shell casings. My very first dig turned up a 1895 Indian head cent. Poor condition but cool to find. These casings are a .32 .243 and a .35 rem. The .35 was at a depth of 6". The penny was at 5" It was a good morming

Re: yesterdays finds

Cool stuff. Dumb question: is there any significance relative to the depth that items are found in? I recently saw a video, think it was on HPA, where items were found at a considerable depth - 8 to 12 inches. I suppose that farming and such would drive items deeper into the ground but sometimes things are found just there on the surface or near it. Told you it was a dumb question.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: yesterdays finds

Not a dumb question at all, I'm not sure I know the answer to it even. I always kinda thought the deeper it is the older it will be, but I know that's not always the case. I think there are many factors that will affect a coins depth. The type of soil, frost, surface activity ect... Maybe some one who knows more about this will chime in. Thanks.

Re: yesterdays finds

Nice finds.
A lot of the stuff I dig will settle in top soil till it hits clay or rock. I have found silver dimes inch and a half deep and 2000 quarters 7-8 inches deep. Just what I've noticed.
