    8-9-13 I found 32 half dollar coins in a tin can out in the woods.
    They date from 1971 to 1979,an 8 of them are Bicentennials.
    1905 Quarter & a 1964 quarter that's silver.

    Good find. Makes you wonder why it was there. Nice 05 quarter. The pawn shop in town sells them for a buck a piece. S.D.

    Finding even ONE half dollar these days isn't easy let alone a cache of them. That's definitely a find that will be tough to match.

    WTG on a cool stash. I had a neighbor tell me years ago he burried 4 -4in x 3 feet long pvc pipes full of silver coins on a property and had to leave in a hurry and they are still in the ground somewhere in OK. Lot's of stuff still out there.

    WOW... Too bad it wasn't buried a few years earlier...They would be worth $200 instead of $16.
    Even still, finds like that really make all the effort worthwhile.
    If his PCV is still there, I would be packing a shovel and diggin every faint little hit. They probably are located near some sort of LANDMARK??? maybe a fencepost, Large tree...rock? something out of the ordinary.
    That quest for the BIG ones, keeps us all going. Thanks so much for sharing....GOOD LUCK to you.

    Yep, I tried to get him to go back in the middle of the night and dig them up He said he cannot go back so I let it die. That would be a bunch of silver.

    The tin can didn't last through the dig.I actually thought I had hit a root with the shovel an pried it back,not knowing I was in the can.It looked a lil like an old comet can.It was very thin an brittle an ashy.

    This was located in the woods behind an old 1900's home site that I have been hunting for awhile now on rainy days,cause thats the best time to go for signals.One of the guys that hunt this property with me went out there today with me an actually discovered 2 flat stones on both sides of where I dug this that was under the leaves.So no doubt some one meant to come back for them at some point..
