More Coins

Had to dig a pile of modern coins before getting into any older stuff. Most of the modern coins came from a single 1 foot area under a clothesline.

Not sure what the large plate-like thing is. it has a horse on both sides and is flattened, but is/was hollow.

1910 Barber Dime

Sounds like a treasure trove.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

Nothing like digging up a silver coin. They come out like the day they were lost. Like they say more has been lost than ever found.

The hollow thing looks like the piece from the end of a belt. The end tip of the leather or cloth belt would have gone inside it. I'm wearing a belt right now like this, though the metal piece is shorter.

I can be contacted at [email protected].

Iím always interested in these metal detecting posts. My kids got me one for Christmas years ago. My most memorable find was a copper roof...a whole roof ( about 20 ft x 25 ft ) There wasnít any sign of the rest of the building, but the thick copper roofing was all intact. I guess if you couldnít find that, you werenít liable to find old wheat pennies.

True story and kind of along the lines of finding coins - but without a metal detector..
When my dad died we had to clean out the house and in the process the grass in the back yard, which was about 20' x 15', was killed and some of the top soil disturbed.
One day while speaking with my uncle who was the executor of my dad's estate, I looked down and found a quarter in that yard. My uncle laughed and said that there was a lot more money in that yard than just that quarter. Really; why was that???
Because, my uncle said, that my dad would stand on the back porch every new years eve and take whatever change he had in his pocket and toss it in the back yard. He had apparently told my uncle that " all comes back to me." as some sort of explanation for why he did this. Now you have to understand that my dad was the tightest person I have ever know with money. He, as family folk-lore goes, "Threw pennies around like they were manhole covers", and I am sure you get the drift of that statement....
Well, with the help of my wife and kids we took it upon ourselves to reap the bounty, as it were, and with a garden rake and other tools we went to work in that yard and eventually found well over $100 dollars. My dad was full of surprises and although he and I had a good relationship and he showed me a lot, I never really knew or understood him - there were a lot of secrets with him personally and with his family too. And the money he literally threw away not only crystallized the secrecy stuff but it reminded me that we are all three people: The person we let outer people see, The person we want to be, The person we are. Granted, the old saying that we hope to become the person our dog thinks we are is also true.

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